Single parents are reaching their limits in the Corona crisis: According to a media report, only about a quarter of them are currently entitled to emergency daycare – because their jobs are systemically relevant. That should change.
Childcare in the Corona crisis poses massive problems for many parents. The 1.78 million working single parents in particular have to find new models. Only 450,000 of them are currently entitled to emergency daycare. This emerges from figures from the Federal Statistical Office, which the Left Party has requested and which are available to the "Neue Osnabrucker Zeitung".
117,000 single parents work in public administration, 50,000 in food retail, 36,000 in financial services and insurance and 30,000 in warehouse logistics. A job in system-relevant areas has so far been decisive for access to daycare emergency care during the corona pandemic.
