Patty and Megan: 2 Generations of Mothers on the Need for Affordable Child Care

Patty and her daughter Megan discuss the importance of affordable child care for Megan's daughter and how this issue affects their family.

Child care is a multigenerational issue that especially affects women who parent. Many of the financial and job sacrifices mothers had to make for their children decades ago are still necessary today.

Watch Patty and her daughter Megan discuss how a lack of sustained investment in quality, affordable child care affects their family.
