Providers closing their child care businesses because they can’t afford to keep it open isn’t a hypothetical. It’s what would happen en masse without a viable wage or economic offer from the state that truly recognizes their worth. We are demanding that Governor Newsom respect providers and pay them a livable wage. Help amplify our demand by sending the governor a message.

This issue doesn’t just affect us. We asked parents how they would be impacted if their child care closed.
