Connections: Current and former child-care workers on the state of the industry

We continue a conversation from Wednesday about the staffing crisis in the child-care industry. According to the Washington Post, child-care providers are down more than 126,000 positions as workers leave for higher-paying jobs and better benefits.

This hour, we talk with current and former child-care workers who share their insights about the industry. Our guests:

  • Bev Bauman, teacher in a child-care center
  • Julie Williams, former child-care worker
  • Jenn Beideman, expectant mother who is seeking child care, and president of the Chld Care Council's board of directors
