Daycare owner conflicted after charging single mom $600 for being late


It's no secret that childcare costs are getting out of hand in the United States, with soaring costs fueled largely by a lack of supply. In Washington, D.C., for example, parents are spending an average of $22,631 a year per child according to the Economic Policy Institute.  

While many states come far under that number, childcare is still often a massive burden for lower-income parents. That's why one Reddit user felt so conflicted after charging a low-income mother $600 after she was late to pick up her child.
