The study examined the role of four different types of support (financial, family, work and community supports) on work-family conflict among low-income employees. In addition, this study explored the relationships between work-family conflict and several work-, family- and health-related outcomes. While bivariate correlations suggest that social support reduces work-family conflict, regression results only partially supported the proposed path analysis model. Significant results for community support suggest that this variable is important and that it may have been erroneously omitted from previous research. Contrary to expectation, work-family conflict was not related to work-, family-, or health-related outcomes. Results of this study shed light on the role of support on work-family conflict as well as the importance of this construct for outcomes among low-income workers.
