The Best Jobs in America for Parents Who Want Careers and Time for Children Too

Two hotel executives, both mothers, here observe that with an increasing number of single households and two-worker families, and with a scarcity of quality day care and live-in sitters, child care has become a major social issue. They point out, however, that a growing number of corporations are providing on-site care and flexible work options. As described by hundreds of men and women interviewed here, such options include three- or four-day work weeks, work at home and alternate week on/week off schedules. The authors offer clear, practical, step-by-step advice on how readers, if granted such arrangements, may select the most appropriate. In this instructive guidebook, Dynerman and Hayes urge readers to be mindful whether their job benefits also provide for maternal and parental leave, pay based on quality and equity for part-time workers.
