Frustration at the edge of the sandbox

Closed facilities, reduced opening hours and now also a strike. The day care center crisis not only strains parents, it harms the whole country. Why good and reliable childcare must have top priority.

The doctor, who now has to pick up the child three hours earlier in the afternoon, sounds almost resigned: “Now I can see how I care for my patients.”
