Wives who claim their husbands should help out more around the house because women work a \”double shift\” at the office and in the home are misguided, according to research.
If both paid work and unpaid duties such as housework, care and voluntary work are taken into account, husbands actually contribute more than their fair share to the household, experts found.
You need to add paid, market, work and unpaid, household, work together in order to get the true amount of work being done. And it\’s around 8 hours a day for both men and women on average.
And that number has been trending downwards for generations.
There is no \”ever longer working hours\” and women do not work longer hours than men.
Two myths destroyed for the price of one if you like.
