Congressional Mama’s Caucus Welcomes President Biden’s Executive Order Investing in the Care Economy
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI-12), Co-Founder and Co-Chair of the Congressional Mama’s Caucus, released the following statement commending the executive order from the Biden Administration to expand access to child and home care and invest in the care economy:
“As Co-Chair of the Congressional Mama’s Caucus, I’m thrilled to see that President Biden has taken necessary executive actions to make childcare more accessible and affordable for families, support caregivers and the critical work they do every day, and protect the rights of domestic workers.
“These actions, as well as others that support care workers and family caregivers, come at a time when too many families are struggling to afford the care they need. Our working families are too often underpaid and have few or no benefits. The Biden Administration’s actions will improve the lives of families at all stages of life as well as those working in the care economy.
“I look forward to working with the members of the Mama’s Caucus to continue fighting to advance policies that uplift working families across the nation.”
