Study finds women work more than men

Posted: Updated:

Who works more, men or women?

when you include unpaid work around the home it's not even close.

A new study finds while men work longer hours at paid jobs, women do a lot more cooking, cleaning and child-rearing.

When both paid and unpaid work are combined, it's women who put in the longest hours.

Researchers found in 22 out of 28 developed countries studied, women work longer hours than men every week.

In all countries tracked, women did a majority of the housework.

The biggest difference was in Italy, where women work an average of 11 hours more per week than men, including family and household duties.

Here in the U.S., men and women work a nearly equal number of hours, about 50 per week, but once again, women take much more of the household burden.

They average 33 hours a week at jobs, and more than 17 hours working around the house.

The study was conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
