The first paper published from the findings of the WAF project looks at German longitudinal data to find that workers work longer overtime when using schedule control, but they also gain additional income from it. However, we find that there are gender differences, where women do not benefit from schedule control in terms of income as much as men do, even when they work as hard.

The second paper published from the WAF project is based on a scoping exercise of childcare provision structures across Europe -one of the main contextual factors used in the project. The main finding of this paper shows that current provision in childcare, both perceived and actual, influences parent’s support for public childcare provision above and beyond ideological stances and interest structures.
