Working Girl

"If your job could either be more fun or pay you more, which would you choose?" "Do you think having children hurts your career and prospects in the job market, helps, or doesn't make a difference? Do you think having children hurts a man's career or prospects in the job market helps, hurts, or doesn't make a difference?" These are just some of the questions in the Ask a Working Woman Survey 2008, created by the The AFL-CIO and Working America. One of the first questions — in which you are asked to add up the number of hours a week you spend talking to your partner or spouse, the number of hours you spend talking to friends, the number of hours you spend talking to your parents and finally the number of hours you spend talking to your boss or coworkers — was kind of depressing. But the rest was fun. [Ask a Working Woman Survey 2008 via Feminist Law Professors]
