Our most recent edition of the Bunch Poll in the National Post
A recent Time Magazine cover story, titled “The Chore Wars,” examines the amount of labour, both paid and unpaid, that men and women put into the household. Current research says that in families with young kids, where a mom and a dad both go to work, women are working just 20 more minutes each week. While it’s true that women spend more time on childcare, men make up for the difference by logging more hours at work. And yet, working moms report that they feel as though they’re doing more than their fair share.
We felt compelled to ask asked some hard working women whether or not this statistic – that working moms and dads put in basically the same amount of labour – rang true for them.
