ABSTRACT
This article reports that benefit packages offered throughout the U.S. economy include a set of policies and practices termed family-friendly. and counseling referral programs. Yet some question whether the current standard is enough to help working parents, mothers in particular, handle the substantial second or third job of family caregiving. Control over their work schedules is highly prized by working parents, and over the last decade there has been an increase in access to flextime options. Employees report more job satisfaction and general life satisfaction when flexible work policies are in place. But the report, which is considerably more complex than these few statistics, also found plenty of problems.
