Mothers 'happier' working

13th December 2007

The Job Satisfaction and Family Happiness survey also found that job satisfaction for women with partners is greater when they work part-time and it says lowering the cost of child care would enable more women to work part-time, increasing their overall satisfaction. However, for men, it discovered that life satisfaction depends on having a full-time job.
