Maintaining Work: The Influence of Child Care Subsidies on Child Care-Related Work Disruptions
Forry, Nicole D.; Hofferth, Sandra L.
Journal of Family Issues, v32 n3 p346-368 Mar 2011
With the passage of welfare reform, support for low-income parents to not only obtain but also maintain work has become imperative. The role of child care subsidies in supporting parents' job tenure has received little attention in the literature. This article examines the association between receiving a child care subsidy and experiencing a child care-related work disruption using two samples and both cross-sectional and longitudinal regression models. Child care-related work disruptions are found to be less likely among subsidy recipients across samples and methods. Program implications and suggestions for future research are discussed. (Contains 4 tables and 9 notes.)
