Our sons also need a societal shift so they can be engaged fathers and partners, in the home and at work, rather than broody, unfeeling workaholic providers. Will last week's Working Father' Summit, which acknowledges the economic reality of dual income families (but not necessarily that very few of those workers can limit their workloads to a mere 40-hours a week), and the upcoming working families summit, pave the way so that all our children can be all that they can in whatever fields they choose to pursue, while also nurturing their own families, and making positive contributions to their communities? It makes good business sense--a 2014 evaluation found that the newly implemented policies for paid sick and family leave (for all workers, not just mommies) found improved worker morale, a reduction in the spread of illness, lower turnover, which likely all attributed to the increase productivity that was also identified. Imagine what would happen if we also embraced paid vacation and capped the number of hours in a workweek like so many other nations have done? Heck, businesses might have happier, more productive workers, and with the savings in overtime pay, maybe could afford to bring back a few of the highly skilled folks that have been layed off since 2008 and that pesky downturn in the economy.
