Poll: Who's The Recession Hitting Hardest? Moms Or Dads?

The recession isn't making anyone's life any easier, however, some people are getting hit harder than others. We ask you who is suffering more in the current recession: moms or dads? According to an article on MSN Today, a new study shows that moms are bearing the brunt of the current recession. Married women with children apparently spend more time between jobs than married fathers. Not only that, once they get a job, moms also get big pay cuts. However, as the traditional breadwinners of the family, most dads feel it is their duty to support their wife and kids by having a good career. What do they do when that's taken away from them? What do you think? Do you agree that moms have it worse? Or do the fathers? Please take our poll and tell us your thoughts in the comment section! [poll id="43"] Photo Credit: Shutterstock
