A new study by Pew found that 3 in 10 mothers with kids under 18 are staying home, but it’s not by choice -- it’s because they can’t find work!

In fact, in 2012, 6% of stay-at-home Moms couldn’t find work, a surprising number. Below are some companies, that offer flexible schedules and a way to work from home.
