Sign a Petition: Worthy Wages for Worthy Work

It’s time to stand up and speak out for the workforce behind the workforce!

Policymakers in North Carolina are working right now on the budget, determining how to use both the federal COVID relief dollars and state funds. We must make sure that they prioritize early education and recognize the value of the early childhood workforce – before, during, and after COVID-19. It’s long past time for child care teachers to earn the professional compensation and benefits they deserve.

Add your name to this petition to show your support for the statement below. Tell policymakers that you believe early educators deserve worthy wages for worthy work!
