Childcare Costs Could Affect Employment

childcare-costChildcare costs continue to rise in the UK and some fear this could lead to further unemployment, as some parents may be forced to leave work.

The Daycare Trust Charity’s recent survey demonstrated an increase of 2% last year in childcare costs for children under two years old.

Although the government is planning to invest in this sector the cost of childcare at present outweighs many salaries. The average salary increase last year was 0.3% and therefore it is thought that some families will struggle to justify childcare costs.
