Looks like the whining for men to do more around the house can fall on deaf ears. From the UK Telegraph:
"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.
According to a study of how people use their time, men in Britain spend marginally longer on "productive" work each day than women.
While many wives scale back their working hours or drop out of employment after having children, husbands will often work overtime to earn more income for the family.
Couples who have no children at home and who both have full time jobs are the only group where women's overall workload is greater than men's, the survey reported.
Dr Catherine Hakim, who carried out the study, said: "This data overturns the well-entrenched theory that women work disproportional long hours in jobs and at home in juggling family and work.
"Feminists constantly complain that men are not doing their fair share of domestic work. The reality is that most men already do more than their fair share."
"One-sided policies that support employment and careers but ignore the productive work done in the family are, in effect, endorsing market place values over family values.
"Furthermore, there is evidence that men are beginning to demand the same options and choices as women, with more claims of sex discrimination from men. Policy-makers need to be aiming for gender-neutral policies."
In other words women should not get preferential treatment. For too long women have been allowed to be capitalists at work, but socialists away from work. What are the two pillars of socialism? Entitlements and redistribution of wealth, which in this case is from men to women. If men and women worked together instead of men working for women at work and at home, the world could be a happier place.
