A new survey of over 2,000 working mothers has revealed that over half will be forced to stop work or significantly reduce their working hours, as a result of cuts in the level of support for childcare costs, due to start this April.

Earnings mobility increased in the 2000s compared to the 1990s, contrary to perceptions, according to new research published today by the independent think tank the Resolution Foundation.
The research focuses on the earnings of people in their 30s and early 40s. While the chances of making a significant move up or down the earnings ladder remained low, they were 22% more likely to see a large jump in their earnings in the 2000s compared to the 1990s. This was particularly the case for the lowest and middle earners, and for men rather than women.
