Workers and parents in Nevada testified for more affordable child care Wednesday morning.

They're asking for federal funding to help parents with child care costs and also want to raise workers' pay to $15 an hour.

The group rallied in November after a report came out showing child care workers were among the lowest paid in the country.

The Nevada Division of Welfare and Supportive Services is considering the group's recommendations.
