dual-earner family

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Is a family in which both partners are involved in paid employment. The proportion of such families has grown in many western countries as a consequence of the feminization of the labour force and growth is associated with heightened concern about work-family conflict and the ability of dual earners adequately to care for dependents. [See time-squeeze and work-life balance.]
