First 5 Orange County President/CEO Kim Goll was interviewed on KNX 1070 AM to discuss Congress’ recent proposal for taxpayer-funded universal child care.
An excerpt from the interview:
“Lots of people would say, ‘We already have subsidies in place to help families who can’t afford child care.’ Yes, that’s true. But in Orange County, we meet 6% of that demand, meaning 94% of families
who are working but do not make enough to pay for child care are left to make really difficult decisions about where to place their children while they’re at work.”
