The U.S. May Lose 20% Of Its Workforce To Child Care In 2020

Alexandra Marvar,

As the new school year kicks in and the coronavirus pandemic continues, parents are making calculated choices to prioritize their families, sometimes at the expense of their careers.

In a survey this month, TopResume asked 2,122 working parents in the U.S. about their plans to accommodate their children’s education for the 2020-2021 school year. They found that a staggering 1 in 5 working parents is considering leaving the workforce to manage homeschooling, remote learning or one of the other new educational arrangements that have formed in an effort to address the pandemic. 

One in 5 TopResume survey respondents, or 21%, said that one of the working adults in their household is considering resigning to accommodate their children’s education, and nearly half (47%) reported that they have negotiated with their employer to modify their work schedule in order to accommodate child care.
