The Effects of Parents' Employment Status on Their Children.

An extensive study done by the Institute for Social and Economic Research, University of Essex, reveals that when fathers are employed, the effects "were generally less important than those of mothers’ paid work. Longer periods of work by fathers when their children were pre-schoolers tended to: - reduce the child’s risk of unemployment and other economic inactivity in early adulthood; - reduce the child’s risk of experiencing psychological distress as a young adult; - reduce the child’s chances of obtaining A-level qualifications or their equivalent." 

We can also realize how the effects on mother's full time employment has detrimental consequences to their children when it comes to their academic, professional and emotional well-being. This information clearly goes in contradiction to what many feminist based studies claim, that single mothers', or career mothers' children do just as well as children raised in a nuclear family setting.

This is also correlated to the fact that the male unemployment rate has dramatically risen since the 60's. All the while we have governments and companies kow-towing to feminists to increase female quotas and show favoritism to hiring women. Here's the New York Times reporting on the fast unemployment rate amongst  men:
"In the late 1960s, almost all men between the ages of 25 and 54 went to work. Only about 5 out of every 100 did not have a job in any given week. By 2000, this figure had more than doubled, to 11 out of every 100 men. This year, it’s 16. (People in the military, prison and institutions are excluded from these figures.)"
And from year 2014 to 2015, men had higher unemployment rate on average compared to women.
