Based on a national random sample (N=820) of PRSA members, we studied three types of family responsibilities and salaries of professionals as stressors of their life-work conflict experiences. Results found the three types of life-work conflict subject to varied impact of family responsibilities while levels of behavior-based life-work conflict dependent on practitioners' salary level. The story of life-work conflict is not as simple as a choice between "career vs. life".
