about

Few people are aware of the injustices working women in the USA suffer due to antiquated laws and attitudes. They are often cheated in regard to Social Security benefits and get unfair treatment in divorce or child support actions because they work. Childcare subsidies have arbitrary cutoffs. Other issues include the 'pink tax,' caregiver status and the price we pay in stress.

An analysis of childcare subsidies and welfare law reveal startling contrasts between the low- or even higher-wage working woman and the woman who receives Welfare. The way health care is financed is especially baffling: working women overpay, by being overcharged by insurers or, often, by the IRS.

This book gives a history of the rise of the working woman in this country, the problems she faces and what we can do to help. This book is the culmination of over forty years in the workplace, many of them while raising two children and working toward a degree.

Recalling 'the way it was' before laws were put in place which now protect us (or try to) from sexual harassment and mistreatment on the job, the author offers personal experiences as well as meticulous documentation to make her points, and she also offers a consideration of various career paths that may be most manageable for women with children.
