In a blog post this week, the National Women’s Law Center wrote that the Caring Economy Campaign’s newly launched Social Wealth Economic Indicators are:

“…a treasure trove of data on business practices, poverty rates, income inequity, educational attainment and more, and deserve our attention.” 

“I’m particularly excited about the new indicators because they will be invaluable for our work.  NWLC has made the case that public policies need to support caregivers, both family members and professional caregivers.  We know that workers need fair schedules, caregivers need higher wages, families need affordable, high-quality child care, and parents need paid leave in order for our society to thrive.”
