Community, Work & Family
Are there racial/ethnic differences in work–family conﬂict? Using a nationally representative survey of Americans, we analyze differences in work–family conﬂict among Blacks, Whites, and Hispanics and then utilize an intersectional approach, disaggregating men and women within each racial/ethnic group. Using structural equation modeling, we ﬁnd that the usual predictors of conﬂict – family and work characteristics – have varied effects on work–family conﬂict among men and women of different racial/ethnic groups. Nonstandard schedules were uniformly linked to increased work-to-family conﬂict among all respondents, regardless of subgroup. Our ﬁndings reveal the merits of intersectional approaches, and suggest the need for theoretical models of the work–family interface that better reﬂect the experiences of men and women of color.
