Mark Cuban, who promised to pay all hourly workers at the American Airlines Center for games missed while the NBA’s season is suspended, just now promised to pay daycare expenses for some healthcare workers, according to Fox4News. “We just finished a program with the Mavs and Luka Doncic, Dwight Powell and some of our players where we’re going to pay for health care… um day care for health care workers. So people can go to work knowing their kids are taken care of. And those day care workers, we’re going to work with different organizations that can check them out and all that. But that’s going to be new jobs as well. So people who may not have had jobs before now will not only be able to get jobs but we’ll have them working with day care organizations so health care workers can go to work knowing their kids are okay,” Cuban said during an interview with CNN. The Dallas Mavericks Foundation has already contributed $100,000 to non-profit organizations to help those who are affected.
