Summary

One reason a lot of moms can't hold down jobs in the service sector, for example, is that the times and days of their shifts change from week to week, making it impossible to arrange child care.According to a 2019 study by the Shift Project, which analyzes data on work scheduling for hourly service workers, two-thirds of workers for the country's largest food service and retail companies receive their schedules less than two weeks in advance, and 80 percent have little or no control over when they're scheduled to work. Other companies would be savvy to follow suit.Getting women back to formal work would also (obviously) help companies solve their hiring challenges.In addition, companies that want to attract women should offer remote work and ensure that they treat their remote workers equitably. Women with some college education and children under 12 are more likely to want to work from home five days a week compared to their male counterparts, according to a study led by researchers at Stanford University.This makes sense given all we juggle: In heterosexual marriages, when both spouses work full-time, women in the U.S. end up doing nearly 60 percent of the child care and more than 72 percent of the housework performed by the couple, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
