Uncertainty and the Rise of the Work-Family Dilemma.
Edwards, Mark Evan
Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n1 p183-96 Feb 2001
Suggests that consumptive certainty of the 1950s and 1960s gave way to economic uncertainty in the 1970s and beyond. Economic uncertainty provided impetus, legitimacy, and justification for young families to adopt new work-family arrangements. Hence, economic uncertainty is conceptualized as a real circumstance that substantiates families' reasonable perceptions of need. (Author/MKA)
