Australian Work Life Balance Survey

From the online edition of The Australian, an article on a recent work life balance survey of 1,435 male and female Australians. The survey found, among other things, that women who return to work part-time after having children have more difficulty juggling career and family than mothers in full-time jobs.

According to Barbara Pocock, head of the Centre for Work + Life at the University of South Australia, who conducted the survey, the issue seems to be that women working part-time jobs face a double whammy that gives them the worst of both worlds: poor career advancement opportunities due to their part-time status coupled with increased expecatations on the homefront because they are only working part-time.

Dear readers, any thoughts on these findings? Hold true in the U.S.?
