This Week’s Capital Commentary
American families are under considerable strain, discouraged in their efforts to attain the traditional milestones of household success of marriage, home, and stable jobs. This strain has a direct impact on children, with studies showing the widening opportunity gap between children born into lower- and upper-income families.
In this article, Rachel Anderson explores how, for many Americans, paid work and caregiving seem in conflict, even though both are God-given callings. Anderson discusses some of the particular dilemmas faced by lower-income workers, showing how the structure of work often conflicts with family life. In looking at the role of public policy to support families, Anderson describes some examples of state laws and private business practices that treat employees as full and whole persons, with callings and responsibilities to caregiving as well as to work.
