Access to child care is a critical work support Texas women need.
In many cases, the lack of affordable child care can force women who want or need to work to remain outside of the job market.
70% of working women have children. Child care is critical for job sustainability.
Access to child care is a pillar of economic security for Texas women. As over half of Texas mothers work to support their families, access to affordable child care is very important.
For a Texas woman making the median income of $41,687, year-round full-time infant care takes up 21 percent of their earnings.
