Early care and education workforce stress and needs in a restrictive, anti-immigrant climate


This descriptive study examines one specific set of sociopolitical stressors—those arising from the restrictive, anti-immigrant climate aggravated by the 2016 presidential election. The aims of this study are threefold: (1) to describe stressors the ECE workforce endures in an anti-immigrant climate, (2) to examine the association of immigration stressors with ECE workers’ well-being and perceived efficacy with children in distress, and (3) to examine school-based supports that might help mitigate the stressors that result from low wages and the hostile anti-immigrant climate.
