Democrats Are About to Massively Spike Childcare Prices for Working-Class Families

Trying to run a childcare system using market prices runs into three main problems.

The wages for childcare providers wind up very low.

Paying the costs out of pocket requires families to undergo major drops in their standard of living when they have a child and creates asymmetries between identical families with different numbers of children.

For a government, solving these problems is pretty simple.

On Monday, many California classrooms were sparsely filled as students walked out to protest against the state’s vaccine mandate.
