Examines the relationship between work schedule instability and child care arrangements. Finds differences between those with consistent schedules compared to those with changing, unstable schedules. Finds that informal child care arrangements are extremely common among service sector workers.
Evaluates the work done by non-profit organizations in the Bay Area suburbs, as the geography of poverty in the region has changed from urban to suburban. Finds that suburban non-profits have fewer resources, but are more cohesive and able to provide services like legal aid to immigrants.
