The U.S. has a problem with child care workers.
In 2015, a federal law required employers to pay for child care, but only if they paid for it in advance.
And many states have no such requirements.
But a growing number of employers are turning to miracle workers, who may be able to pay the bills themselves.
So what are they doing?
They’re hiring child care providers to provide care.
Many of these people are working in a variety of industries, including education, health care, and social work.
And they’re taking a huge risk.
In addition to working as babysitters, miracle workers also care for people with disabilities.
In one of the country’s most vulnerable populations, they’re seeing the worst effects of the crisis of child care.
