7. Caregiving in any context is underpaid

Whether it is in the home or professionally, it provides virtually no benefits or longterm security. We need changes at a basic, legislative level so that these jobs, which are critical to a thriving society, are compensated fairly. Right now, it is minimum or no wage, uninsured and no possibility of retirement, ever. Women comprise the largest segment of unpaid labor and poverty.

Thank you for an excellent article.
