Childfree Issues: Benefits Project
This project establishes a blog as a clearing-house for advocacy issues and a website to begin the campaign for one issue: workplace benefits. By incorporating prominent leaders of the childfree and childless communities, this blog attempts to create a central platform for launching many such projects.
The workplace benefits campaign is centered on the idea that benefits packages of unequal value are a result of the lack of visibility. We advocate for a âcafeteria-styleâ benefits plan which would allow each employee to select whichever benefits would be most useful, and ensures that each worker receives an equally valued total compensation package.
Although such plans benefit many different people, the advocacy here focuses on the inequality between those with and without children, since the project itself is aimed not just at achieving that end, but at motivating and organizing the childless behind an initial goal.
