FLEXIBLE working hours, equal pay, a child-friendly workplace and an understanding boss are at the top of a working mother’s wish list, according to today’s Daily Telegraph. http://www.news.com.au/business/story/0,23636,23322762-5012426,00.html When I was a full time working mother with a young child, my wish list included an opportunity to work from home during school holidays; and free childcare for the rest of the year. Now as a self-employed migration consultant, my wish list includes 25 hours in the day and one time zone around the world, so I don’t get any more late night/early morning calls from overseas clients!
