The demographics and needs of the U.S. workforce have changed. In most families with children, all parents work, and mothers are increasingly the breadwinner for their families. One in six people in the U.S. provides unpaid elder care to a relative or friend, and more than half of these caregivers are in the workforce. Nearly one in two people lives with a chronic medical condition that requires regular care. But workplaces have not caught up with these realities—indeed, many are moving in the wrong direction, providing work schedules with less stability, predictability, and employee input.
