Description
"Families today are squeezed on every side--from high childcare costs and harsh employment policies to workplaces without paid family leave or even dependable and regular working hours. Many realize that attaining the standard of living their parents managed has become impossible. Alissa Quart ... examines the lives of many middle-class Americans who can now barely afford to raise children. Through ... firsthand storytelling, Quart [posits that] our country has failed its families"--,Provided by publisher.
