Child care benefits at work: This app helps your employer pay your family and friends for babysitting

Employer-subsidized childcare is helping parents find backup babysitters with a service called Helpr. Parents can search through pre-vetted sitters or add friends and family to the app, allowing them to be paid for the last-minute services. Dozens of big employers, such as Vice and Snapchat, have partnered with Helpr. Legislation in California is underway to mandate subsidized childcare for employees of big companies.
