Freedom to Care for Your Family

Freedom to Care for Your Family

As a mom of three daughters, I know how hard it can be to work and care for your children. Right now, families, with women bearing the brunt of it, are facing impossible choices of having to return to work without adequate child care. In fact, 64% of young women, as a whole, cite the lack of affordable child care as the reason they are not choosing children. We are only 1 of 7 countries in the entire world that does not provide paid family leave. In some cities, people spend more money on child care than rent, and in rural areas in Montana, there are entire child care deserts which place ever increasing hardships on grandparents and extended family members. I will support policies like the child tax credit and paid family leave that give Montanans the freedom to care for their kids and families the way they believe is best. Source: 7/25/2022
