This chapter explores what families, particularly mothers, do if they work. The first section shows the overall employment situation of the families, and this is followed by a comparison of the employment situation of lone mothers and mothers living as part of a couple. The work trajectories of employed mothers, their work patterns, their journey to work, and how mothers combine family life and paid employment are discussed. The chapter ends with a study of their satisfaction with their current job and their thoughts for the future.

Keywords:   employment situation, mothers, work trajectories, work patterns, commute, family life, paid employment, job satisfaction
