How Common Are Nonstandard Work Schedules Among Low-Income Hispanic Parents of Young Children?

Working weekends, evenings, and early morning hours are the norm for most employed, low-income Latino parents, according to new research from the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families. Many, and particularly immigrant parents, also have little advance notice of their work schedules. These type of work schedules can make it difficult for families to access child care options, particularly the publicly funded care designed to support low-income families.
