The costs of children : parenting and democracy in contemporary Europe /

by Mayes, David G. (ed) | Thomson, Mark (ed.).

Edition: WOMEN - Employment | CHILD CARE - Costs | | WAGES - Women |Publisher: Cheltenham, U.K. Edward Elgar Publishing 2012Description: xvii, 287 p.Summary: This informative book explores the fair allocation of the costs of childcare in European countries and suggests that better choice is required to reduce the current tendency to discriminate against mothers. The expert contributors provide an assessment of how countries can handle the fair allocation of the costs of childcare. They look at the experience within Europe in recent years and show in particular how these interrelate with the objectives of improving income, employment and social inclusion. The study's conclusion reveals that choice is the key ingredient as families have different views and different degrees of support available from their relatives. Income and social inclusion can provide choice but ironically employment does not always. An employment-based model can sometimes narrow people's choices, particularly for people on low wages. The major concern is that most existing systems effectively discriminate against mothers. This is the first book to consider the democratic implications of social welfare systems. It provides an up-to-date assessment of the pressures on parents in deciding how to raise their children under restricted incomes. For many families, practical decisions about childcare are found at a local level. These will depend on the immediate factors that affect them, such as the availability of local nurseries or a family's ability to draw on voluntary networks of support. What is clear, however, is that many of these arrangements discriminate against women. Researchers and practitioners in the field of social policy and childcare in particular will find this book insightful. Graduate students of social policy will also find some practical examples to make their courses more relevant. [Publisher]Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

I am pleased to share with you the important findings of what is Australia?s largest survey ; of working women. ; This year 9,167 women participated in the survey, telling us a lot about the issues we need to address to improve their working lives. ; Last year the survey results provided clear evidence of ; the increasing pressure felt by many women caring for children and others such as their parents. ; The information gathered has been used in the CPSU?s ongoing advocacy with Government as well as to formulate the CPSU core claim for bargaining, particularly regarding hours of work and overtime and ; work/life balance entitlements. ; Both the 2009 and 2010 survey results have been instrumental in framing the CPSU?s approach to bargaining in 2011. Of key concern are the number of women who continue to work additional hours and the high percentage who do not get compensated for this." (Forward)Availability: (1)
