I hate to burst your bubble on hump day, but I have some discouraging news to share, working moms. We're damned if we do and damned if we don't ... and I have scientific proof.
According to a new study, flexible schedule requests at work are benefiting dads more than moms. A sociology professor at Furman University surveyed nearly 700 people and the results were shocking: Dads who ask for a flexible work schedule or to work from home twice a week are viewed as more committed, more competent, more worthy of a promotion, and ... get this ... more likeable compared to equally qualified moms who ask for the same thing.
But wait ... it gets worse.
