Abstract

Assesses the extent to which corporate organizations in the US have responded to the working mothers and child care issue. Illustrates, through case studies and examples, how organizations have sponsored or offered financial benefits or provisions to workers; to ease the burden of the financial cost of child care and in so doing maintain a competitive edge by retaining skilled workers. The financial and social implications of the corporate organization as “family caretaker” are also raised for the present as well as for the next century.
