Parenthood, Family Friendly Firms, and the Gender Gaps in Early Work Careers
We find that women disproportionately sort into family friendly firms after first birth and that the wage penalty to motherhood is diminished by being assigned to a more family friendly firm or job. We also find that working in a more family friendly firm or job diminishes the parenthood penalty to labor earnings and makes it easier for mothers to work more hours. At the same time, the smaller wage and income penalties to parents from working in family friendly firms and jobs come at the expense of their occupational progression, especially among mothers, impeding their ability to climb career ladders.

among prime-age adults, working-class women (HS or less) have fared even worse than working-class men, both in the aftermath of the Great Recession and since 2000. The employment rate for prime-age working-class women is about 8.2 percentage points lower today than in 2000; for prime-age working-class men, it’s 6 percentage points lower. As a result, the large employment gap between working-class men and women is wider today than in 2000.
