The pandemic has made the nation’s crisis in care all the more urgent with more families forced to choose between employment and caring for loved ones. Biden’s infrastructure plans could make unprecedented investments in childcare, elder-care and disability care. Co-founder and Executive Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Caring Across Generations, Ai-jen Poo has called for care to be treated as fundamental infrastructure. She joins me on the show today to talk about investing in care and pushing for care infrastructure in the USA.

DeSantis alienating the cruise industry.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.
