Or those parents going back to work can pay for their own with that 13 billion number you throw around....
Except they are not going back to work. The Data shows that. Why would you go to work when 20k of your salary goes to childcare, and you may make 30k after taxes?Or those parents going back to work can pay for their own with that 13 billion number you throw around....
I did the math earlier.Are you saying they'd pay enough taxes to pay for the daycare then?? So 6% extra workers can pay that much into the economy??
Quebecers pay for it all by themselves
Lol.....Child care would be more widely available if parents were not so stingy. Take the limit on the number of children per worker in a facility; multiply by the cost per child. Figure that not all of that money can go straight to the worker's salary. Expect to find that the remaining amount for salary is not large.
According to the Government of Ontario’s Licensed Child Care Survey, median monthly fees were $1,320 for an infant, $1,080 for a toddler and $940 for a preschooler. (2019)
A 2019 national survey of child care fees, found that Ontario cities had the highest median full-time centre based and regulated home child care infant fees in the country at $1,774 a month or $21,288 annually. Fees in rural areas in Ontario tended to be comparable to fees in nearby cities.
21,288 annually.1. Parents complain about the cost. Ask people who work in daycare.
You cannot command the market, if you don't want to pay 21,288 annually, you don't get a spot.2. Look up what daycare workers can command as hourly wages.
Why do you say this?I think you've made assumptions that need to be more realistic. For example, you presume that the 250k additional women working will make the average income of 56400. The real likelihood is that they'll make closer to 35000, which reduces the income generated to 8.75B. Then you need to take 27% which represents the amount of income tax collected to 2.36B, which will in no way allow the program to pay for itself.
someone making 55k has take home of 42k. Half their disposable income is going to daycare. A lot of people aren't going to do that.For the most part, yes. If you can afford daycare, you work. If you can't, you don't. Those on the lower end of the income spectrum are most likely not able to afford daycare, and therefore most likely to not work.
