Forty-four per cent of working moms say they’d take a pay cut if it meant they could spend more time with their kids, according to a CareerBuilder.com survey of 1,124 women in the United States, employed full-time, with children under the age of 18.

Nearly one in 10 say they would give up 10 per cent or more of their salary. Of working moms who are not the sole financial provider, nearly one-half (49 per cent) say they would leave their job if their spouse or significant other made enough money for the family to live comfortably.
