A New Wrinkle for Moms

In the age old decision of moms to work or not to work after they have kids comes this:

Back to work, like it or not

Pretty interesting stuff and not something I thought about as I constantly read about the recession and all the other economic issues this country is facing. But I also know a few SAHM's who have recently started working a part-time job to increase the family's income. It always sucks when the choice is taken away from the mom/family about working vs. staying at home since ideally it should be a choice, but when it's the issue of paying the bills or not, there's not a choice. Of course, for a large section of the population, recession or not, there's never been a choice and unfortunately our country doesn't exactly have the best ways of supporting moms who would like to be able to spend more time with their kids.

Addme to the list of Moms who are looking to make a few dollars here and there! I'm trying to make it "home" as long as we can but man it's getting tight :(
