ABSTRACT

This is an empirical study that analyzes factors affecting the work-family compatibility of female wage workers with underage children. The analysis was conducted with 1,113 women from the 7th wave of the Korean Longitudinal Survey of Women & Families by Korean Women’s Development Institute. As for research methods, multiple regression analysis was used in order to analyze the effects of ‘social support(home support, maternity protection support, childcare and education services)’, ‘job characteristics’, ‘socio-demographic variables’ and ‘husband characteristics’ on ‘work-family compatibility and conflict’. As a result, it was analyzed that the husband’s support for work life, gender inequality at work and women’s educational training were the factors that strengthen work-family compatibility. It was also analyzed that gender inequality, use of childcare and education facility, number of underage children, age of husband, husband’s satisfaction with caring support and husband’s support for work life were the factors that cause conflict between work and family. Thus, if the policy of strengthening the work-family compatibility is a long-term policy, it appears that it is necessary to supplement and strengthen policies that can reduce conflict factors in the short term. It is hoped that the results of the study will be used as objective and academic data to strengthen the maternity protection and work-family compatibility of female workers with underage children.
