Day care cuts force people back onto welfare

Albany and Erie County's day care cuts forcing people onto welfare.

GCASA has a number of "working poor" who are employees and many who are clients. This screw up in social policy hurts our employees and clients alike. In the long run it weakens our communities and decreases the quality of our lives.

I am aware that the Goldman Sachs folks got their bonuses and are running up record profits because of the largess of us taxpayers. What about our neighbors and their kids?

Something is not right when the rich get rich and the poor get poorer and the inequity between social classes spreads wider.

We see it at GCASA every day and it is very disturbing.

Read Donn Esmonde's editorial. It is worth it. You can access it by clicking here.

This is article #2 in a series on working poor.
