9 Out Of 10 Can’t Afford Child Care in New York State
A report just released by the Empire Justice Center finds that 9 out of 10 New York State residents cannot afford quality child care. The study determined the annual cost is just over $15,000 a year per child which is the sixth-highest in the country. Subsidies are available including the ones recently awarded to Schoharie County but the costs are still overwhelming especially for those making minimum wage.
