Can Working Families Ever Win? by Jody Heymann
Book DescriptionTaking on the American belief that creating a better life for your children is simply a matter of working hard, Jody Heymann argues that poor parents don't have a fair chance. Because essential supports are not provided, it is impossible for parents to succeed at work while caring well for their children. Because they can't get ahead, the health and education of their children suffer. Their children's potential to succeed is severely reduced.
