Women, especially mothers, may need a boost to re-enter the workforce. Read about it here. I do have to register an objection to one of the solutions and that would be more government involvement in childcare. As a woman who stayed home for a number of years, I am for choice where it matters. Women who decide to stay home to raise their children should be able to benefit from the same government support and fiscal policies as women who join the paid workforce. That being said, I agree that one of the keys to female employment is the availability of good, affordable childcare. I’m just not convinced that government is the key to good, affordable childcare. Let’s not forget that when the state decides what is good, it also decides what isn’t. Given our government’s stance on abortion, I’m not sure I want it involved in telling me what is good parenting.
