New Research on Working Families in Major Transition

Working families are living in the midst of a major social and economic transformation. Men’s attitudes about working and caring are changing; the time crunch and technology result in pervasive multi- tasking, lack of concentration, and increased stress; people, especially mothers, feel isolated despite making numerous “friends” in cyberspace; and concerns about immediate and long-term finances are widespread. WFD’s newest research investigates how working families are adapting and responding; presents some creative, innovative ways that families successfully navigate the “new normal”; and suggests approaches employers, community organizations and practitioners can take to support workers to be successful in their working and caregiving roles.
