Parents warn of crucial "babysitter skills gap"

Couple warns of tight supply of qualified child care providers, supports BS-1 visa program

"We just can't find people who have college degrees in early childhood education, but are willing to work for $7.50 an hour to look after our two kids," they complained. "America has a shortage of child care providers and we need the best and the brightest from around the world to compete in our increasingly global child care labor pool."

NB satire

  1. These people have some real first world problems. Yes, let's promote that young people should go to college & spend 4 years of studying while racking up huge school loans...so they can work for less than minimum wage wiping the asses of the offspring of the 1%.

    Pay a living wage and you'll have qualified applicants swarming the doors.

  2. My proposal would be to ship these babies to China, where they can acquire critical Mandarin skills, and get a chance to compete in increasingly competitive child labor pool.
