Study: More Moms Seek Full-Time Jobs

Marissa Mayer, eat your heart out. More mothers are interested in working full time than there were five years ago, says a new Pew Research survey. According to the data, 37 percent of moms want to work around the clock—up from 21 percent in 2007. The poll found a “strong correlation” between financial well-being and how much mothers want to work, with roughly 47 percent of those who claim they “don’t have enough to meet basic expenses” saying full-time work would be ideal. The study also found that women who are wealthy are just as happy to work part-time jobs—or not at all.
