The morons in charge either don’t know how to run a business, or they are deliberately lying to you. Data point:

As I have said before, price controls never work. Have you seen the price of groceries lately? Even feeding those kids will cost a huge chunk of that $10 per day. Unless you are planning on feeding these kids crackers and water all day.

Capping child care at $10 a day is only about $1.13 an hour. Since the administration also supports a minimum wage of $15 per hour, as well as free healthcare, paid family leave, paid sick leave, and other benefits, then add in the taxes, overhead, and lunch that they want included, each daycare worker would need to watch 40 to 50 children. My math below the fold.

No, the reason why they want to do this is so that all private daycare goes out of business, leaving the government to raise and look after our children, so they can expose them to more porn and propaganda. They can’t be this stupid, so it must be an attempt to lie to you in order to gain more power.

Here is the math at costs for each day, and I am lowballing this:

  • Worker’s pay for a 9 hour day, minimum: $135
  • Social Security, liability insurance, etc. $50
  • Paid Time Off (1 day per month) $25
  • Health Insurance $45
  • Other HR overhead $50

Total cost for labor: $275 per day, so labor alone requires 28 children per daycare worker.

Now you have the cost of a facility and its utilities, which comes to another $130 per day:

  • Rent of space for watching those 40 kids: $2000 per month
  • Utilities (water, power, Internet, phone, CATV, etc.) $600 per month

There are other costs, including furnishings, toys for the kids to play with (unless you plan on having them just sit there), on top of the fact that you will have to feed them. Just to break even, your fictional daycare center will need to pull in $450 a day or so.

If you are doing the math, you are now at 45 children or more for each daycare worker.

Your perfectly valid concerns about the motive for this garbage objective aside, I’ve seen the typical daycare center and those who staff it. I’d say a buck thirteen an hour is about what they’re worth. And that’s being generous.

Did Kamala say this on her knees? Cuz that is the only time her brain engages……
The US will be stuck with blind, deaf, and broken kids as unsupervised children can get really rough; especially older on younger kids. Remember days of yore, when a 7yro, a 6yro, and a toddler were loose in the household. No thinking, functioning, relatively intelligent caregiver can watch more than 8 kids. That is-actually SUPERVISING AND TRAINING said children. Otherwise, it is just warehousing-like grades 1-12 (and beyond) do. Another government-taxpayer funded-boondoggle.

Two points of interest.

As a kid 45 years ago a local church group did summer programs for kids who had no parents at home. They kept the cost down by providing a free snack of peanut butter on celery but us kids had to bring our own lunches. A $10 a day daycare would likely do the same.

You missed hygiene in your costs. A % of the kids will not be potty trained. That means either kids have to be dropped off with a full diaper bag or the center has to provide them. Not sure on current prices but they were 50cents plus a diaper 20 years ago

1) They don’t care about “profit”, nor “breaking even”.
2) Most states have laws about how many kids one person can assume care of, and for that matter, how many kids can be placed in one facility.
3) Their goal is to make private daycare impossible, force all the workers onto the government reservation, while as you noted, capturing the kids for grooming and indoctrination purposes from the earliest age.
4) Government will charge $10/day, but subsidize the other $50/day, thus grabbing another part of the private sector in perpetuity, and force taxpayers to yet again foot the bill, primarily for non-taxpayers cranking out 10 brats on welfare and AFDC.

Some people keep decrying the moment when the shooting starts.

Sad as that day will be, stuff like this is why it can’t start soon enough, and why it’s the only way this sort of nonsense ends forever, mainly by ending the progenitors, and burning them out of the human consciousness forever with fire and acid.
