Moms are bearing the brunt of recession, study shows

Though the media has focused on the plight of unemployed dads, it’s moms who are suffering the most in the current recession, a new study shows.

The study, which looked at the outcomes for laid-off workers across the United States, found that married women with kids spent more time in-between jobs than married dads.

Making matters worse for the moms was the big pay cut they took once they finally found a job: On average moms lost $175 per week more than dads, according to the study, which was presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association.

For the study, co-author Michelle Maroto, an assistant professor in the sociology department at the University of Alberta, scrutinized four sets of data from the Displaced Workers Supplement, a nationally representative survey conducted by the Census Bureau every other year.


BUT DON'T WOMEN ALWAYS GET THE BRUNT OF DIFFICULT TIMES? AND THEN THEY GET IDIOT POLITICIANS WHO TRY TO TELL THEM WHAT TO DO WITH THEIR BODIES! IF YOU'RE A WOMAN AND YOU VOTE REPUBLICAN IN 2012, YOU'RE A TOTAL DISGRACE TO YOUR GENDER! :bounce:
