The Workforce Behind the Workforce Legislative Luncheon, Wednesday, March 28, 2018
On Wednesday, March 28th Iowa AEYC hosted a legislative luncheon to focus on the early care and education workforce. Our workforce is the foundation that supports Iowa’s parents in getting to work in all other sectors. We have a great turnout that included over 60 people total, with 30 legislators represented from both sides of the aisle. Thanks to all who took the time to join us and advocate for improved compensation and supports for the ECE workforce!
