Webinar on Topic of Minimum Wage and Early Care & Education

On June 16, 2021, the Alliance for Early Childhood Success convened a group of experts and voices in a webinar to discuss the competing pressures of increasing compensation and supporting providers and families in ECE. The discussion elevated four critical ingredients that go into an advocacy strategy for meeting the minimum wage challenge – and to increasing early childhood educators’ compensation generally:

  • Organize the collective voices and power of the early childhood education profession.

  • Invest in ECE workforce data capacity and cost analysis that incorporates higher wages.

  • Cultivate inside champions in the governor’s office, legislature, and agency.

  • Become familiar with tax and revenue issues and advocate for promising strategies to generate new funding for ECE.
