Recent research in the UK has shown that women’s low pay has huge implications on child poverty.
I think we can apply those findings to most countries. Throughout the world, women both tend to have most of the child raising responsibilities and tend to receive lower pay. For example, many single mothers work hard at multiple jobs and still do not earn enough to support themselves and their children. That means the mothers often do not have enough time to raise their children and do not have enough money to provide their children with quality education since the mothers can neither afford private school nor afford to live in an area with quality public schools.
To break the poverty trap, I believe we must ensure that single mothers and all parents get paid enough to properly raise their children.
What do you think? How do you suggest we raise the pay of women and ensure parents can afford to raise their children?
