Pittsburgh legislation offers free child care for city employees

In an effort to make childcare more accessible, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and City Councilman Dan Gilman have sponsored legislation that would provide free child care to city employees on days that Pittsburgh Public Schools are closed but city offices remain open.  


“Data shows that family-friendly workplace policies reduce costly turnover and boost productivity,” said Gilman, who plans to introduce the legislation at Tuesday’s regular City Council meeting. “By offering at-work child care to our employees, the City is investing in its employees and ensuring that we continue to provide a high level of service to the residents of Pittsburgh.”
