Think electricity is too expensive? Or you’re paying too much for your for your rents and mortgages? Well, since 2012 the cost of childcare has been growing even faster. Too many parents are struggling to afford childcare, or find spaces for their kids. Universal, free primary and high school is a fundamental right. We believe it’s time for universal, free, public, childcare. We would give 3 and 4 year olds three days a week of free childcare and one day a week for 2 year olds. We’ll build 250 new public childcare centres in the inner-city, and the regions to ease the shortages. We’ll ensure that all childcare workers are paid professional wages, with good conditions and permanent job security if they want it. This will ensure parents can head back to work if they wish, make ends meet and ensure every child has the best start in life. We can afford all of this, if we ask property developers and mining corporations to pay their fair share. Share this video if you want universal childcare and a future for all of us.
