The Problem and Definition of Terms Used

During recent years there has been a steady increase in the number of homemakers employed full-time outside their homes. When a homemaker resumes dual responsibilities she is faced with an increased need to manage her time well in order to meet the family needs as mother, wife, and homemaker plus meeting the employers expectations of an employee. There has been much speculation concerning time management by these employed homemakers, but there was very little available research on this areas of management.

The Problem

Statement of the Problem. The purpose of this study was 1) to determine how a selected group of full-time employed homemakers managed their time, and 2) to compare the findings of this study with the findings of a study done by Macede1 in Manile, Philippines.
