"Mommy Track" Poses Challenges for Women, Employers
Problems also arise when these women re-enter the workforce. According to a survey by the Forte Foundation, women re-entering the workforce have trouble finding jobs and pay scales equivalent to what they had before they left. The survey also found that these women often preferred fewer hours and lighter workloads. At a time when widespread labor shortages are forecast for the next several years, employers may need to be extra creative if they plan to attract and keep happy these returning "mommy trackers."
