From the Paper:

" In conclusion it may be stated that the low paid working mother does not have, according to the presented research, a detrimental prescience towards lower cognition in their children. In fact the aspect of a dependable job heightens structure within the dynamic of the home. It must also be pointed out however that low paid mothers also have to face less support from the government because a wage earning mother is not applicable for assistance like a welfare mother. It seems that the working mother, in her role as mother and employee has a lot to maintain and little aid in maintenance."
