With the lower income blue collar worker the childcare cost becomes more of an issue. I am that blue collar 30-40 hour a week worker with a short commute. If I had to pay for childcare I do not think it would be worth it to me to work because there would be so little net income after expences.

A lot more balanced, I agree.

Well, it wasn't a "Tra-La-La! Sah is Speshuler Than Any Crappy Job and Women can't Make Real Money Anyway, Who's Raising Your Poor Babies Who Will be Delinquent Teens???"--it was more balanced than I expected.

IN some cases SAH makes more sense for a family.
