Chapter 11 Work and Families  The work hours of parents help determine where some of their meals come from, whether it’s a home cooked meal or fast food.   Work: effort made for a desired outcome such as pay, knowledge, or experience.   Care work: the unpaid work of taking care of another person. Example: children, elderly parents.   Housework: work to maintain the house. Ex: cleaning, laundry, repairs, yard work.   Market work: work done for pay  Families must decide how to split house and care work, when to pay for housework  services, and when to use childcare services.   When women entered the workforce more, it started out as only single women without  children, then married women without children, then women with kids.   Women with college degrees are more likely to be in the workforce than high school  dropouts or women with only high school diplomas.   More women are working during pregnancy and after giving birth than ever before.   Occupational gender segregation: the practice of women and men working in separate  occupations. Ex: doctors are mostly men and nurses are mostly women.   Time use studies are used to measure the differences of how men and women spend their  time, work and otherwise.   The roles of housework and childcare have become more equal over time but are still  pretty uneven.   In same sex relationships, the division of labor is fairly even.  Women are encouraged to stay home with children when they make less than men.   Work­family conflict: when the demands of work interfere with family obligations.  Single parents have the most of this, as they do all work with no help from a significant  other.   There are more single mothers in poverty than in past, and less of them receive  Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.   Mothers often earn less after children, while fathers earn more.   Women with a bachelor’s degree or higher are more likely to get paid leave and keep  their job than women with no college degree or dropouts.   Even if men and women do the same amount of work (paid+unpaid), women are  disadvantaged because they make less money.   Women are usually working more during hard economic times.  o Men often feel disappointed during this time, causing more traditional gender  roles.   Division of labor becomes more traditional with marriage and children.   Many people are reducing work hours to care for the family o This limits career potential for many people.
