We're Here for YOU!

In the past few years many child care companies have made record profits, but instead of sharing those profits with the workers who did the work, they kept those profits. Leaving many workers with no pensions, and dismal wages. 

Even Non-profit organizations continue to ignore the needs of the workers, that make the services they provide possible. Instead unreasonable Directors and managers are rewarded for the hard work of their front line workers.
