The high cost of child care and lack of paid leave are serious issues for working parents. How do we encourage employers to offer more child care benefits?

Depends on the pay 💰 to offset the cost. The ROI vs the net.

This question is rather loaded...parents will most likely choose free child care, as it is so expensive, but single workers or those without children, will always want higher pay, as they dont feel that their wages should be less to pay for a service they dont use or need. This discussion thread didn't stand a chance to survive long.

yeah that is a good question ,am encouraging parents to avoid marriage many wives so that they may be able to afford their families with the little they have despite of the economic crisis.

Being equal value, then a higher pay is better, you get the flexibility to spend it and child care problems will go away in time.

Higher pay, I have no young children (not everyone "benefits" from the same "benefits").
