Picking job over family?

My sister god bless her, but she works for a bank. She puts in 55 hours a week. Her boyfriend dumped her last week (the kids dad they been together ten years) saying she doesn't have time for them as a couple or time for her three boys.
She works for a bank and I kept telling her she needed more time with her boys. My nephews have basically been raised by their daycare. My sister has missed field trips, soccer games, and things they boys do at school.
Well now her boyfriend dumped her saying she rather climb the ladder at work instead of being a mom, he already has a new girl friend, we thought he was cheating at the start of the month and he finally conformed it. But still all my sister does is work..she has no time for her family.
I told her to cut her hours, she has missed so much already and she refused..now look what's happening..She lost her family..
I don't think he should have cheated..but I see his point when all she does is work come home back to work the next day..she has no break.

He's an asshole, he should have left or better yet expressed his feelings to her if he was unhappy. He shouldn't have cheated.

And if she cuts her hours, will she be able to afford to support them??

I think that was a lame excuse from the boyfriend. There shouldn't be a choice between work and family. It is 2013-you can have both.
