Working Fathers

Interviewer: Melinda Penkava

Interviewee: James Levine

Talk of the Nation, June 12, 1997.  Balancing work and family have traditionally been seen as women's problems, but more and more men want the extra time to spend with their families. Creating a father-friendly workplace is a challenge that is being met by a growing number of businesses. Supporters of programs that give dads time away from the office think we have a workforce full of men who are too tense - allowing them more time at home will benefit the quality of their job performances. Join host Melinda Penkava for a discussion about fathers juggling their professional and personal lives.
