Health Benefits, Leave, and Child Care Subsidy

Q9Does the County's health benefits package make you more or less likely to want to stay in County employment?
Q10Should the County increase leave accrual rates at the lower end of the seniority scale to be a more appealing employer to new employees?

In 2018 negotiations, labor and management created a joint task force to explore child care vouchers for King County employees. This came in recognition of a growing affordability crisis where families with young children can spend more than $2000/month (per child) for care. The work environment also suffers when working parents are forced to miss work, pass up career opportunities, switch jobs or quit work to take care of their children.

Q11Do you agree that King County should provide a child care benefit to its employees?
Q12What funding option would you support for this benefit if it was created?
