Coloradans know child care is expensive and hard to find. There are a lot of reasons—and solutions—for this. One that is rarely discussed is the workforce in early care and education. Working parents rely on these educators every day to be able to get to their own jobs, yet early childhood workers are among the lowest paid in our workforce and turnover is frequent. Bill Jaeger returns to the podcast to explore a package of solutions that lawmakers will consider soon.
