Summary
Families today are squeezed on every side--from high childcare costs and harsh employment policies to workplaces without paid family leave or even dependable and regular working hours. Many realize that attaining the standard of living their parents managed has become impossible. Alissa Quart, executive editor of the Economic Hardship Reporting Project, examines the lives of many middle-class Americans who can now barely afford to raise children. Through gripping firsthand storytelling, Quart shows how our country has failed its families. Her subjects--from professors to lawyers to caregivers to nurses--have been wrung out by a system that doesn't support them, and enriches only a tiny elite
Summary
The executive editor of the journalism nonprofit, Economic Hardship Reporting Project, outlines counter-intuitive recommendations for meeting the challenges of today's high parenting costs and unstable job markets that are imposing difficult hardships on the middle class
