  • Abstract

    Mothers’ deliberate their choices and wonder what affect taking off work to raise a child will have on workforce reentry. Mothers, employers and lawmakers need to understand the decision of mothers, what biases they face, what impact they have when reentering the workforce. This quantitative and qualitative study looks at stay at home mothers or part time working mothers to view their beliefs on the choice of when or if to return to the workforce. The quantitative question asked to 169 mothers from across the United States discussed when or if they would return to the workforce. They were then provided with a comment section in which 20 mothers stated their issues about returning to the workforce. A qualitative interview was given to 3 Midwestern mothers from the United States about reenter into the workforce and if they felt they could reenter the workforce when they want, if there could be biases, and how they feel they will be viewed. Also asked was what they feel will be the hardest thing about reentering the workforce when or if they chose to.
