With some families needing both parents to be in the workforce in order to pay the bills and keep a roof over their heads who's expected to stay home from work when the kids are sick?
Who should take days off work to care for kids that are too sick for school or daycare?
Even if the rate of pay is different both jobs are important.
I feel like it's mainly left up to the mother to have time off work but this makes her less reliable compared to a woman who has no children.
