@Carman,
Did you even read the article or just draw your own one-sided conclusion from the headline? It said nearly a third of stay-at-home moms are single women struggling to make ends meet. They cannot find work that will cover the childcare they need and instead rely on support from family and the government. These women need jobs, they need income, and they can't find anyone willing to pay them enough to even make it feasible. This is a major problem of income inequality that is directly contributing to the number of people on welfare programs. So which conservative value should we preserve, the one stating that we need to get everyone of welfare, or the one stating that companies should be allowed to pay people as little as they want?
