This presentation was given at the 57th National Association for Welfare Research and Statistics (NAWRS) Workshop in 2019. The presentation highlights barriers to workforce participation and family stability for low SES new mothers and provides the results of a study on the effects of paid family leave. Paid family leave was shown to both affect mothers' likelihood to their likelihood to spend time at home with their new babies and their likelihood to return to work at all, though current family leave policies were shown to be inadequate to meet mothers' needs.
