Last place I worked (before quitting to stay at home with our newborn) paid for everyone's personal cell phone & gym membership and provided company pickup trucks for low-level team leaders to commute every day from ~50 miles away. Subsidizing just a portion of childcare costs would be a fraction of the fringe benefits they offer. Oh well. |
And I'll rightfully acknowledge that the workplaces who are likeliest to lend a hand in this regard are probably not employing those who would need it most.
