Mums spend a third of their salary on childcare

Washington, Mar h 16: Mothers with full-time jobs need to work for up to four months a year in order to recover the average costs of a childminder or nursery, new research has revealed.

According to a study from the Family Investments organisation, a mother in Britain spends 7,127 pounds per year on childcare, the Independent reported.

The figures will add weight to calls for the Government to take action to stop the spiralling cost of childcare which, according to recent reports, prevents up to one million women with young families returning to work. (ANI)
