Working mothers can plug abattoir labour shortages, Eustice claims

by pregnancy journalist
Working mothers can plug staff shortages at abattoirs left by an exodus of European migrant workers, the environment secretary has claimed. George Eustice said the meat processing industry is adjusting shift patterns to attract British staff, after many of the Eastern Europeans it had relied on for more than a decade left the country due to Brexit and the pandemic. He suggested companies are reverting to older practices and unravelling a shift to migrant workers that occurred in the past two decades, as the European Union expanded eastwards. Back to the olden days Speaking to MPs on the environment, food […]

New Research Shows How The Coronavirus Recession Is Disproportionately Affecting Black Working Mothers

by pregnancy journalist
The World Health Organization states that anyone can catch COVID-19 and become seriously ill. Still, older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart and lung problems, diabetes, or cancer, are at higher risk of developing a severe illness. Well, one of the pandemic hot states- Louisiana– happens to be one of the top 10 states where Black people live. Black women are 60% more likely to have high blood pressure. The prevalence of high blood pressure in black people in the U.S. is among the highest in the world. Black people have lung cancer more than any other population group, are 60% […]

Nooooo! 13 random thoughts all working mums have when the alarm goes off

by pregnancy journalist
No matter whether we were night owls or up with the birds in our pre-baby lives, odds are that if we’ve got small people in the household right now, we’ll be struggling to get out of bed most mornings. This is never truer than when we’re working mums. Knowing that we have a commitment to be in the office (or wherever our workplace happens to be) at a certain time every day, puts a certain amount of pressure on early mornings that ensures we are never going to be slowly waking up over that first cup of coffee as we […]

WFH hacks for busy working mums | Good Spa Guide

by pregnancy journalist
Week two of juggling working from home with home schooling a 6- and 9-year-old and I’m starting to feel a little frayed around the edges.  I may have nailed navigating the Seesaw app, but simultaneously role-playing Little Red Riding Hood, discussing ‘fronted adverbials’, answering at least 137 questions per hour and providing endless snacks all while, you know, pulling off a day of adult work is proving a little challenging. All the good intentions of Dry January evaporated on 5th when Boris decided we should all ‘stay at home’, again. But while the end-of-day wine/G&T helps, there are some WFH hacks that make things just a […]

Inflexible UK employers see working mothers lose £1.3 trillion in earnings annually

by pregnancy journalist
Britain’s working mothers are presently losing out on £1.3 trillion in earnings as a result of inflexible business culture. More than half the mothers in the UK responding to a recent survey revealed that they had left or changed jobs due to family commitments – with the majority of these jobs no longer putting their educational background to use, suggesting a huge waste of talent on top of the loss of income. A number of consulting industry studies have outlined the major business benefits of accommodating the needs of parents within their workforce. One example, of paid family leave, was […]

Hearing from Low-Wage Working Mothers: How a Housing Program in Ohio Connects Children to Better Schools

by pregnancy journalist
KiAra Cornelius, an African-American, single mother of two, desperately wanted a school that would be more challenging for her children, particularly her son, Senoj, a straight-A student. Tehani, a divorced Hispanic mother of three who has been homeless, wanted a school with choir and drama programs for her daughter Brandy, a passionate singer and actor. Both mothers lived in Columbus, Ohio, whose public school system has an overall D rating on the state report card, and an F rating for academic achievement. They sought out whatever opportunities they could: Cornelius chose a charter school, and Tehani invoked a provision in […]

It’s 2018! So Where Are the Jobs for Working Mothers? – Roar Like a Woman

by pregnancy journalist
I’m job-hunting. I’m a mother. And I have a home to run. You would think that, after more than half a century of feminism, jobs would come designed to fit working mothers. Not a chance. So far, almost every position I’ve applied for has been brutally full-time. That’s despite the fact that the magazine writing and editing work I do lends itself beautifully to part-time and flexible hours. It also lends itself to home-based work, yet, in three months, no role I’ve come across is even partially work-from-home. Not a single role even mentions the words ‘mother’, ‘kids’ or ‘school […]
