Don’t blame the babies: Children and their surprisingly small influence on overwork

Jeremy Reynolds, Associate Professor, University of Georgia

Many authors suggest that when employed people have children, they are unable to reduce their work hours as much as they would prefer. Existing research, however, offers mixed support for that claim. Jeremy Reynolds will discuss the roots of this popular hypothesis and potential reasons for the mixed support, and offer an analysis of parenthood and work hour
mismatches using U.S. panel data.
