The recent reports of moms getting arrested for leaving their kids unattended while they work or go to a job interview shows the reality of "work-life balance" when you're living paycheck to paycheck.... Millions of workers have nonstandard schedules, irregular shifts or on-call jobs without set hours, so they scramble from shift to shift, from daycare to night classes, or anxiously call in each day in hopes of getting a few hours of work. Having no control over your work schedule means your boss controls not only how much you're paid but how much time you spend with your kids.
