Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Work-family balance in the United States refers to the specific issues that arise when men and women in the United States attempt to balance their occupational lives with their family lives. This differs from work-life balance: while work-life balance may refer to the health and living issues that arise from work, work-family balance refers specifically to how work and families intersect and influence each other. Work-family balance in the U.S. differs significantly for families of different social class. Middle class family issues center around dual-earner spouses and parents while lower class issues center around problems that arise due to single parenting. Work-family balance issues also differ by class, since middle class occupations provide more benefits and family support while low-wage jobs are less flexible with benefits. Solutions for helping individuals manage work-family balance in the U.S. include legislation, workplace policies, and the marketization of care work.show more
