How Much Do Childcare Workers Earn?
Child care workers only made an average of $18,820 in 2006.
Preschool teachers did a bit better at $24,784 – reported by the teachers union.
Certainly we can do better than that. Bill Gates thinks so, his foundation will spend $12 million in child care programs. Also Gov. Chris Gregoire created the Department of Early Learning to address the problem. Hmmm, we will see.
