Abstract:

Juggling Work and Family focuses on the increasing tensions between workplace expectations and family needs. The traditional family with a stay-at-home mother and working father has been replaced by the growing number of single parents and dual-career couples. In this fast-paced new economy, Americans are feeling the stress of working more and have less time than ever for their family. This program looks at how working parents in various occupations across the country are trying to reconcile work and family conflicts. The program explores how companies and unions are seeking to ease the work-family conflict with child care centers, subsidies, and alternative work schedules that include part-time work, job-sharing, and telecommuting. Experts analyze the problems, address solutions, and pose the question: what else can be done?
