Our relationship to the value of caregiving contains a paradox. On the one hand, we hold as heroes those who care grandly: Mother Teresa’s care for Calcutta’s poor, St. Francis’s protection of living creatures, and the Indian guru Amma’s 33 million hugs come immediately to mind. But on the other hand, while we value the care given by parents, teachers, healthcare workers, childcare providers, custodians (and on and on) we don’t value that care financially. The paradox is that we both value and don’t value caregiving.
