This article says that most SAH moms do so, because they can't afford to work (i.e. couldn't make enough to cover their childcare costs). Or that their husband's income is in the top 5% of earners in the US. So SAHMs are at the two extreme ends of income. This seems to me to be pretty much what we've found through discussions on this board. Do you think that there should be programs in place to make it easier for SAHMs in the lower income brackets to go back to work? How could this be accomplished?
