Chaps to blame for care costs


THE soaring cost of childcare is seeing women ‘priced out of work’. Mothers can spend up to a third of their salaries on childcare meaning that, for many, it’s not worth working.

this is nothing new: when my two were small, childcare ate up most of my salary — but I still paid for it. I was worried that if I took time out, then all my hard work in my 20s and early 30s would have been for nothing. Men simply don’t have that problem — and since men still mostly make the rules, childcare remains expensive.
