Substantive sections of this report of the conference provide: (1) statistics on child care in New Jersey; (2) a description of the day care situation that focuses on projected needs and currently operating assets; and (3) three plenary presentations on the labor environment that discuss the changing roles of women in the new labor market, the effect of increased demand for workers on the development of solutions to the crisis in day care, and the child care problems facing employees. The 12 workshops are very briefly summarized Also included in the report are luncheon and keynote addresses by United States Senator Bill Bradley, New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean, and the Secretary of the United States Department of Labor, Ann McLaughlin. These addresses focus on the role of the federal and state government in programs serving children and families and the need for businesses to become more extensively involved in providing child care services for their employees.
