The importance of care workers for both children and elderly or disabled adults has become even more clear during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working-aged people’s access to affordable caregiving has a direct impact on their ability to participate in the labor force. Despite the growing need for care workers, the care sector struggles to recruit and retain workers due to low wages, lack of benefits, and challenging working conditions.

Join us at “Building a Thriving Care Workforce” where we will bring together recent research from the San Francisco Fed’s Community Development team and concrete examples of ways to better support care workers to create a thriving care sector.
