This Labor Day Don't Forget Working Mothers!

Folks, Working Mother's Day is coming up it is a day to honor our mothers who raise us and work at the same time. The Nations Network of Child Care and Resources Referral (NACCRRA) reported that right now 70.5% of women with children are in the labor force. In 1987 that number was 50.8 % according to the Census Bureau.
There was a Family Matters Survey done in 1998 by the National Partnership for Women and Families. They found out that 70% of working mothers say that they just don't have enough time with their children. And 8 out of 10 working mothers say that they do way more household chores than their spouse or partner.
25 hours per week of their time goes to childcare, housework, or shopping even when their spouses/parters are working too.

You can read more about the survey at Mothers and More. It's a non-profit that cares for the caregivers. And every first Sunday in September, it is declared Working Mothers Day right before Labor Day. So here's to honor those mothers:
