Child Care: Almost Ours. An AFL-CIO Guide to Implementing Child Care Laws.
American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, Washington, DC.
On October 27, 1990, Congress enacted comprehensive federal child care legislation targeted toward low-income workers and a broad expansion of assistance to parents through the earned income tax credit. This guide alerts union members to the benefits that are now available under the new law: the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990. The guide also recommends a plan of action at the state level through which unions can influence the crucial first steps involved in implementing this new program. (RH)
