Yes, many parents want to scale back at work

That’s the upshot of this Washington Post piece.

The story segues quickly into the expenses of child care, which is just part of the equation. The other part comes later: Jobs with flexibility to tend for kids are essential. (If that weren’t the case, I might still be at USA TODAY.)

The ideal solution: Employ more people and have them work fewer hours. What sense does it make to have parents working 60-hour weeks while others are unemployed?

Then if you have health care and child care that fills any gaps, you have a productive, family-friendly society.

Too logical?
