In 1900, women were a large part of the workforce in the textile industry and in hosiery and knit goods. Then women had extended families to fall back on to look after their children while at work. Today's woman doesn't have that luxury of an extended family, whether they work in textiles or other industries. To help out with this situation, some employers are providing on-site-day care centers, but the numbers are small. North Carolina only has twelve employer-operated centers. Sellmeyer examines how this benefits both the employee and the employer.
