Moen, Phyllis; Dempster-McClain, Donna I.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n3 p579-90 Aug 1987
Used 1977 Quality of Employment Survey data to examine work-time preferences of 224 dual-earner couples with children. Gender was significantly related to work-hour preferences for both self and spouse, with wish of wives to work fewer hours endorsed by husbands. Actual work time and gender interacted such that mothers working full-time preferred to reduce work week. (Author/NB)
