Midlife Caregiving and Employment
Midlife Caregiving and Employment .Katharina Spiess and Ulrike Schneider find that starting or increasing informal caregiving is normally associated with a reduction in the number of hours worked per week. On the other side there does not appear a positive effect on hours worked for women terminating a caregiving spell or reducing care hours. This suggests that, among midlife women, reductions in work hours or exits from the labour force in order to provide care to family members are unlikely to be reversed after terminating care giving responsibilities.
