Exactly. Some people got a lot of money in that time. Child care costs are obviously astronomical but the answer is not to outsource the State's responsibility to provide it by subsidising private child care. The answer is to invest in a massive State-run and publicly-owned child-care system like the systems which already exist in several EU member states, including Spain and Italy, while ensuring the workers in that system are well-paid as opposed to the current condition of poverty wages.
