Nonstandard Work Hours Common for Low-Income Hispanic Parents
Weekends, evenings, and early mornings are typical working hours for most employed, low-income Latino parents according to new research from the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families. Three out of four Latino kids age 5 and under living in low-income households have a parent working these nonstandard hours. This new research brief examines the implications of these schedules on Latino families’ ability to access child care options, especially those designed and subsidized to support low-income families.
The Hispanic Research Center also released an infographic that compares the average day of a Latino parent to their White and Black peers, according to data from the American Time Use Survey.
