MothersÂ´ quest for Job Protection: Building the nest of breaking the gall ceiling?
Previous research has found that temporary contracts delay marriage and fertility in Spain. Using newly released administrative data we have studied the motivations behind the fertility delay that is associated with job protection. We have found that during the first five years after the birth of the first child, mothers in protected jobs were promoted less and their wages grew less (16 per cent) compared to those of mothers that had a fixed-term contract at the time of childbirth. The poor after-birth outcomes of mothers in protected jobs contrasts with their better performance before the birth of their children, with wages growing more rapidly than those of other women and other mothers
