Happy News about Gen X and Gen Y
It's not surprising that there is a website called happynews.com but it's still encouraging to see an article where two leading research institutes, the Families and Work Institute and Catalyst, are concluding that younger workers want more flexibility and balance between their work and personal lives.

It would be a happy day indeed if the workplace responded in a meaningful way to these desires. Few things could impact the ability of a couple to equally share more than an abundance of jobs that are flexible, meaningful, and available.

What are the most significant hurdles to equally sharing that you face?
