DO WOMEN REALLY WANT PART-TIME JOBS? AN EMPIRICAL STUDY ON WHETHER FULL-TIME JOBS OR PART-TIME JOBS GIVE HIGHER SATISFACTION
MetadataShow full item record
The study explores the relationship between working status and the welling-being of prime-aged men and women with young children. By using the Canadian GSS cycle 19 dataset, I studied two aspects of well-being: “satisfaction with jobs or main activities” and “satisfaction with life as a whole”. The main findings are that for partnered moms, those with part-time jobs report lower job satisfaction and higher life satisfaction than their full-time counterparts.
