Starbucks offering new family care benefit to employees

National News

Starbucks is offering a new family care benefit to its employees.

Today the company announced that workers will receive 10 subsidized backup care for children or elders.

The new benefit is being offered with the help of care.com, a digital platform that connects caregivers with people that are in need of them.

Workers can choose to pay a dollar an hour for in-home care for kids or elders or five dollars a day for each child at a daycare center. 

After the ten days, workers pay the full cost for services offered by care.com

According to the national survey of children’s health, two million parents quit their jobs in 2016 due to lack of child care.

A Starbucks spokesperson says this offering is “the final piece of the puzzle” of a new set of benefits announced by the company in January 

The new set of benefits include giving all baristas sick leave plus 500 dollars in stock grants, higher wages and paid parental leave for up to six weeks.
