Get Involved In National Working Daughters Day November 21st
There are approximately 54 million unpaid eldercare providers in the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and the majority are women. These “Working Daughters” make substantial contributions to the people they care for, the healthcare system, and the Nation’s economy. Often, they provide this care at great personal sacrifice.
Working Daughters often find they need to switch to a less demanding job, take time off, or quit work altogether in order to make time for their care-related duties. In fact, a study from MetLife and the National Alliance for Caregiving calculated women lose an average $324,044 in compensation due to caregiving.
National Working Daughter Day, purposefully chosen for the month of November, which is National Family Caregiver Month, recognizes the incredible contribution of the women who are caring for our most vulnerable citizens – while balancing careers, raising children, and more.
