How Common are Nonstandard Work Schedules Among Low-Income Hispanic Parents of Young Children?

Our new brief finds that working weekends, evenings, and early morning hours is the norm for most employed, low-income Latino parents. Many, and particularly immigrant parents, also have little advance notice of their work schedules. These type of work schedules can make it difficult for families to access child care options, particularly the publicly funded care designed to support low-income families.

More About The Center

Hispanics represent the largest, and one of the fastest-growing, racial/ethnic minority population groups in the U.S. With one in four children in the U.S. now Hispanic—and roughly one-third of Hispanic children living in poverty—the well-being of this community will have profound implications for the future workforce, economy, and prospects of our nation. To help programs and policy better serve low-income Hispanic children and families, the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families (Center) provides research and capacity building activities across three areas:

The Center is both policy and program driven, and is dedicated to providing timely research findings, tools, and scholar opportunities aimed at improving the lives of low-income Hispanic children and families. Child Trends and Abt Associates—together with university partners—launched the Center in 2013 with a five-year cooperative agreement from the Office of Planning, Research & Evaluation, an office of the Administration for Children & Families in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
