NH’s Business: A Bipartisan Proposal to Solve NH’s Serious Childcare/Workforce Dilemma

POTATO SALAD. >> WELCOME TO NEW HAMPSHIRE BUSINESS. MI’ FRED KOCHER . THERE IS A MISSING GROUP OF WORKFORCE ACTION IS PARENTS OF CHILDREN AND PARENTS CANNOT FIND WHERE C’TAN TO PROVIDE CHILD CARE. WELL, THERE’S A PROSAPOL IN HAND AND WE’LL GET THERE IN A MINUTE. THE DILEMMA IN NUMBERS. 2021, 87% STAFF SHORTAGE. 80% OF SALARIES ON RECRUITMENT PROBLEMS AT MNAI. 58% SAY THERE IS A LIST WT LONGAI DAN THEN THE CHILD CARE PROGRAMS CHART AND YOU CAN THE BARS THERE AND FROM 2018, 19 AND 20 AND OF COURSE CHILD CARE CENTERS AND THE FAMILY CHILD CARE AND YOU CAN SEE THE BARS AND THEY LIKE GREEN AND THEY ARE WEAK AT THAT POINT. HERE IS A QUOTE. WHEN WE HAVE TO CLOSE A CLASSROOM BECAUSE WE CANNOT KEEP OR FIND TEACHERS, PARENTS LEAVE THEIR JOB OR REFUSE AN OFFER. IT IS THE FMROHE CHILD CARE ADVISORY COUNCIL AND HAS A CHILD CARE CENTER IN PORTSMOUTH. AND THEN THERE IS THAT. >> CHILD CAREHE T WORK FORCE BEHIND THE WORK FORCE ACT OF 2022, EABSTLIESSH CHILD CARE FINANCING PROGRAMS ANDRE TENTION, AND BONUS AND BENEFIT PROGRAM HE T WHITLEY STATE CENTER WELCOME. >> THANK YOU. >> AND A REPUBLICAN AARON HENNESSEY OF LITTLETON, WELCOME TO YOU. >> THANK YOU, EDFR. SARA HENNESSEY, START WITH YOU. WHAT WOULD SOLVE THIS CHILD CARE DILEMMA? >> FRED, I REALLY THINK THAT THIS BILL IS HELPING TO SOLVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE ISSUES THAT HAVE COME TO LIGHT AS A RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC. IN THE SPRING OF 2020, WHEN I WAS A SEAT ON THE GOVERNOR’S LEGISLATIVE AND BIPARTISAN ADVISORY COUNCIL, WE AT THE TIME RECOGNIZED THAT THE KEY TO GETTING NEW HAMPSHIRE’S ECONOMY BACK ON TRACK WAS IMPROVING OUR CUSTODY INFRASTRUCTURE SYSTEM OF CHILDREN. AND THE PANDECMI EXPOSED THE FRAGILITY OF OUR SYSTEM AND THE IMPROVEMENT OF OUR CHILD CARE SYSTEM WHICH I BELIEVE SB446 WILL INCREASE OUR WORK PARTICIPATION RATES AND IS SOMETHING I THINK ALL OUR NEW HAMPSHIRE EMPLOYERS WILL APPRECIATE . >> HOW WILL THIS HELP NEW HAMPSHIRE CHILD CARE? BY THE WAY, WHAT ARE THE PROSPECTS IN THE SENATE TO PASS IT? >> IT’S BIPARTISAN, SENATOR HENNESSEY AND SENATOR CARSON ARE ON THIS BILL WITH OTHER DEMOCRATS AND YOU KNOW, I TNKHI IN TERMS OF OUTLOOK, I CAN START FROM THERE. A LOT OF WORK WE DO BIPartisan. UNFORTUNATELY, THE ISSUES THAT RECEIVE NOTICE ARE THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL. BUT THE REALITY IS THERE IS A LOT TO WORK TOGETHER. SENATOR HENNESE AND I ARE TWO WORKING PARENTS. WE OURSELVES HAVE CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS, AND HE THINKS WE REALLY UNDERSTAND THE CHALLENGES FAMILIES FACE IN GRANITE STATE AND THAT IS WHY WE ARE TOGETHER IN A BIPartisan WAY TO WORK TOWARDS SOLUTIONS. WE CALL IT THE WKOR FOERC BEHIND THE WORKFORCE, BECAUSE WHEN OUR CLDHI CARE COMPANIES CANNOT RECRUIT OR TARGE EMPLOYEES, PROGRAMS AND CLASSROOMS CLOSED AND FEWER SPACES ARE AVAILABLE FOR OUR CHILDREN AND TSEHE ARE THE CHILDREN OF OUR FORCE LABOR AND RESULTS IN THE EMPLOESYE HAVING TO RESIGN AND RETURN JOB OFFERS IN THE CITY AND WILL HAVE NO RIPPLE EFFECT FOR █THE ECONOMY. >> AND IT’S EIGHT OR NINE MILLION. HOW WILL THIS BE PAID? >>THIS WILL IDEALLY USE IN-STATE FEDERAL ARPA FUNDS AND IMPLEMENT CHILD CARE FOR LONG TERM SUCCESS. IT DOESN’T JUST THROW MONEY FOR UNIQUE BONUSES. HE SET IT UP FOR STATE BONUSES AND ENSURES OUR CHILDREN HAVE A SAFE AND RELIABLE PLACE TO GO IN THE FUTURE. >> FROM THE NEW HAMPSREHI POLICY INSTITUTE, I’M SURE HALF OF ALL NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSEHOLDS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN HAVE FACED CHILD CARE DISRUPTIONS DURING THE SECOND HALF OF 2021. THAT IS SO A PRETTGOY GROUP. AND SENATOR, ANY COMMENT ON THIS SUBJECT? >> LAST YEAR NEW HAMPSHIRE HAD CLE TOOS 1,500 UNFILLED CHILD CARE POSITIONS AND WE KNOW IN OUR STATE THAT 54,000 CHILDREN UNDER SIX YEARS OLD NEED CEAR AND WE HAVE 33,00 AUTHORIZED DESIGNATED SPACES. WE NEED TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM TO GET PEOPLE BACK TO WORK AND HELP OUR FAMILIES. >> THANKS TO YOU BOTH. SENATOR WHITLEY O
