SHE WORKS HARD FOR THE MONEY

THE FACE OF THE FAMILY breadwinner is changing. In a study entitled Women: The New Providers, released May 11, 55% of 1,502 employed women surveyed said that they provide half or more of their families' income. Even among employed married women, 48% earn at least as much as their husbands. An additional 24% expect their earnings to provide more financial security for their families over the long term than their partners--a jump of 15 points since 1981. The upshot: "If we care about families, we have to care about women's pay, because women's earnings are directly related to the welfare of families," says Arlene Johnson of the Families & Work Institute.EDITED BY KEITH H.
