A new study from the International Trade Union Confederation shows that investing in the care economy in seven countries would create 21 million jobs and address other problems related to aging populations and economic stagnation. The analysis looked at Australia, Denmark, German, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States and found that an investment of just 2% of GDP would narrow the gender pay gap, reduce overall inequality and lower barriers to women’s participation in the workforce.
