When Donald Trump announced his plan to create a new federal child care program last year, he promised to make sure that childcare providers could earn a living.
Now, that promise appears to have been broken.
The Trump administration announced a plan to reduce child care costs for working parents.
The plan would require employers to give up some or all of their profits on childcare, and also would require workers to take a wage cut.
While the details are still being worked out, the new proposal would also make it more difficult for working families to get jobs, and it would likely hurt working mothers and their children the most.
While it’s true that working families will pay more for childcare, the Trump plan actually increases costs for low-income working families.
The proposed plan would eliminate payments to childcare providers, cut funding to the program, and would limit the ability of low-wage workers to access health care and other benefits.
The impact on working families is significant.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the impact on families in the bottom third of income quintiles would be a $2,500 reduction in disposable income.
That means families earning less than $30,000 a year would see their incomes fall by $500 a year, while families earning more than $150,000 would see incomes rise by $2.5 million.
The proposal would decrease benefits for working family members and their dependents by an estimated $1.4 billion over the next 10 years, while increasing costs for lower-income workers and their families by an additional $1 billion.
And it would cut funding for programs that support low- and moderate-income children.
The elimination of Medicaid expansion funding and the cuts to other benefits that families depend on would further hurt working families, especially children.
It’s unclear how much of this would be paid for through higher taxes.
Trump has suggested that his childcare plan will save money by eliminating tax deductions for childcare expenses.
He has said that the plan will also lower costs for workers, including those who are working part-time, while also increasing productivity.
But the proposal also could increase costs for the very workers it’s intended to help.
Trump’s proposal will have significant effects on low-skilled workers who depend on child care.
As one study has found, childcare costs increase by about $2 for every $1 in wages lost due to a worker’s childcare expenses, while low-paid workers are more likely to see that income decrease due to childcare expenses as well.
The new plan could also reduce the ability for working people to have childcare at all, as working families would have to take less money to afford childcare than they currently do.
In addition, the proposed plan could make it difficult for low wage workers to get the help they need to maintain their jobs and pay bills.
A working mom working part time would need to take out more loans and other financial assistance to support her children, or face a potential increase in her monthly mortgage payments, according to the Urban Institute.
Working moms would also be more likely than other workers to be in debt, according the Pew Research Center.
Many low- to middle-income families rely on their parents’ earnings to survive.
Working mothers could find it harder to get their children into college or the workforce if they have to pay more than their parents.
According a 2016 study from the National Center for Policy Analysis, the number of working mothers who live in poverty has more than doubled over the past 40 years, with more than 2.5 billion working mothers.
The report found that children in working families are more at risk for poverty than other families because of a lack of access to higher education, lack of financial resources to support them, and a lack in family structure that allows children to thrive.
The working mother may be in a better position financially to care for her children if her work supports them economically, and if she can afford to take the time to help them get to school, but it’s also possible that the cost of childcare could increase.
Trump and his supporters have promised that his child care plan will create jobs and create good-paying jobs.
But it’s not clear that he’ll make good on those promises.
Working families will likely have to choose between getting a job that pays enough to cover their basic needs and paying a significant amount for childcare to afford a child’s education.
Working people already pay more in taxes, so it would be unlikely that the Trump administration’s proposed childcare plan would make the middle class more financially secure.
Instead, the proposal could make the very middle class worse off.
