District of Columbia Crushes Child Care

(Before It's News)

The District of Columbia will require child care workers to have a college degree. Since this can’t be attributed to malice, it must be a steaming, stinking pile of stupidity. Darrick Johnson gives a couple of reasons:

First, it’s terribly punitive to non-college educated workers, who may have years of experience in child care, but now have to obtain an expensive degree by 2020 in order to keep their job. Child care is important work, and [it’s] not easy, but it has also been a place where less affluent people, with less formal education, could find work. Washington is running them out of a job.

Second, [it’s] going to create incredibly high prices for child care. For single moms who have no other options, shrinking the labor pool for child care (and burdening those workers who stay with expensive student loans) is making an already painful expense much worse. Monthly child care costs in the District average $1,800/month, and this will only further inflate prices.

As WaPo notes, “early-child-care teachers that go on to earn diplomas often leave their jobs to work in public schools, where they can earn substantially more.” Meddling bureauweenies are destroying an entire occupation, and an important one.

In liberal utopia, only welfare moms will have kids; those who work won’t be able to afford them.

Could be regulated out of existence in D.C.
