Crisis in care

As I mentioned in my previous post, health care, paid sick and family leave and other family friendly policies are not just good for mothers, they are best for all working families–in essence, in the interest of America’s common good. (More productive workers, a healthier democracy due to time for community involvement, happier and healthier children–to name a few benefits.) I’m so glad to see that this idea is getting more press. An article in The Nation had an interesting take on things. (I especially like the author’s point that giving moms tips on time management and yoga techniques are only cosmetic personal solutions to a much bigger societal problem.) Maybe with the upcoming presidential election we will hear more about some of these debates. If any of you find articles or hear new thoughts on these issues, I’d love to know.
