Job Changes Following Childbirth: Are Women Trading Compensation for Family-Responsive Work Conditions?
Estes, Sarah Beth; Glass, Jennifer L.
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v23 n4 p405-36 Nov 1996
Investigation of differences between women who change jobs after childbirth and those who stay with employers reveals that women are motivated to change by both financial and family reasons. A trade of compensation for greater family accommodation may be more necessary for those with lower levels of skill, education, and experience. (SK)
