The Unsustainable State Of Childcare
I don't have children to care for. And as a bachelor I do not know how people make arrangements to have their children cared for while they work either. I didn't understand just how unsustainable the current situation is. This article is eye opening for someone who does not have children.
Greer has written before about how he feels that families need to get back to living with one member making a employed wage, while the other stays home and handles family issues, child care and manages a home based business. With the levels of money needed to provide child care, I can see why. Even if wages for the working poor continue to rise.
Going into the Long Descent this will get more and more important.
