It's a Tough Market for Ex-SAHDs

MSNBC takes on the subject of at-home dads headed back to the paid workforce this week, making the point that re-entering the workforce is even harder for dads than it is for moms. Two general points here:

 1. Most of the hurdles the story talks about have to do with longstanding stereotypes about caregiving dads that are probably less and less true. Being out of the workforce screws up your prospects for employment, but I can't imagine that gender really adds much to the difficulty.
 2. MSNBC is about four years behind the Wall Street Journal, which took this on four years ago.

(Thanks to Paul at Working Dad for flagging.)
