Mothers' Work and Children's Lives: Low-Income Families after Welfare Reform
This book examines the effects of work requirements imposed by welfare reform on low-income women and their families. The authors pay particular attention to the nature of work, whether it is stable or unstable, the number of hours worked in a week, and the regularity and flexibility of work schedules. They also show how these factors make it more difficult for low-income women to balance work and family requirements.
