Proposed Tax Breaks Aim to Alleviate Child Care Burden for Pennsylvania Families

Families in Pennsylvania facing challenges finding affordable child care might soon receive assistance through a proposed plan discussed by lawmakers. The idea is to offer tax breaks to companies that help their employees cover child care expenses. Many mothers are forced to stay at home because they can’t afford child care hindering their ability to work and support their families. Lawmaker Liz Hanbridge pointed out that in America lots of moms can’t work because child care is too expensive. This plan could potentially address this issue allowing more parents to return to work and contribute to their household income.
