We find that family life remains central to the identity of Australians, although breadwinning men hold a special attachment to work, perhaps in their role as hard-working providers. The same breadwinners are also more attached to the family for child care, but along with the others, they still prefer governments and private providers to deliver it. Working time pressures are hitting neo-traditional families hardest. These families, with a second part-time worker, have a bit more time than full-timers, and a bit more income than breadwinners – but perhaps not enough of either.
