Simultaneously, CBS is running a series on adult children looking after their aged parents called The Caregivers. Kelly Wallace told us that few employers--one corporation out of four--include eldercare support for such workers even though it should improve productivity, morale and loyalty. Johnny Taylor, the consultant CBS commissioned to help with Wallace's report, predicted that as the population ages, workers will demand such benefits just as they demanded preschool daycare when they were younger.
Anchor Couric rounded out Wallace's report with this expert advice for workers: gather together like-minded colleagues and approach the human resources department to seek benefits modifications. Translate those euphemisms and Couric seems quite the agitator--she might as well have said "organize a union" so you have the clout to "engage in collective bargaining."
