Jennifer McClellan USA TODAY Published 7:32 p.m. UTC Aug 29, 2018 If you have two children in child care, you’re likely paying as much or more for their daytime care than you are for housing. The cost of child care fees for two children in center-based care exceeds the cost of a mortgage in 35 states and the District of Columbia, according to the most recent data from Child Care Aware of America. You’re also likely to spend as much on child care for a young child as you would to pay for a year at an in-state university. Child care costs exceed $20,000 a year in 22 states, including Oregon, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. Massachusetts parents paid the most, shelling out $34,381. The average cost of one year at a public university for an in-state student is $20,770, according to the College Board. Keep in mind the college figure includes tuition, fees, room and board.

The government wants to increase the number of public sector workers in Health and Social Care who are eligible to receive hazard pay, according to a Government Decision project recently launched into public debate by the Health Ministry. If this project is passed, the 12-15 percent hazard pay of the base salary for work in special conditions like stress or risk would also be offered to medical-sanitary specialised personnel from medical practices organised in nurseries.

The Fair Labor Standards Act prohibits anyone under the age of 18 to work in “hazardous occupations.” But President Donald Trump’s Department of Labor is working to relax these protections for young workers, according to draft documents obtained by Bloomberg Law . Currently, 16- and 17-year-old apprentices are prohibited from getting extra training in certain dangerous jobs , ranging from operating power-driven woodworking and meat-processing machines to forest fire fighting. The new proposal would unwind the protections that 16- and 17-year-olds currently have. This effort aligns with Trump’s mission to expand the “earn-as-you-learn” model to more Americans. Last June, Trump signed an executive order that allocates $200 million in taxpayer dollars to fund apprenticeship programs. In 2016, the Labor Department spent $90 million on apprenticeship grants. Approximately 440,000 apprentices (less than 1% of the workforce) participate … [Read more...] about The Trump administration wants to unwind child labor laws
