New Study Finds That Men Work Almost an Hour More At Their Jobs Than Women

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

Men work more hours than women in both full-time and part-time jobs, while women still shoulder most of the housework, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

The BLS study, using data from 201,5 shows employed men, on average, work 42 minutes more per day than women. While that figure is partially attributed to women working more part-time jobs than men, among full-time employees, men worked 8.2 hours per day compared to women’s 7.8 hours.

One of the biggest reasons why the much-cited gender pay gap, often described by economists as a gross simplification, amounts to an average of 79 cents on the dollar, is because men undertake more paid work than women. The principle reasons a wage gap appears between men and women is because of life choices such as having children and balancing work with other priorities. (RELATED: Gender Pay Gap: Study Reveals Why Women Earn Less)

Many feminist campaigners claim the difference between men and women’s work habits reflects a patriarchal and sexist society rather than men and women’s preferences.

“The typical feminist take on this division of labor is that women are somehow forced to do housework and care for children, either by societal expectations or by the fact that husbands refuse to their ‘fair share’,” writes Charlotte Allen of the Independent Women’s Forum.

“But maybe it–like the fact that men put in longer hours on their jobs outside the home–has more to do with the sexes’ personal inclinations and choices. Such as the fact that women generally like to have cleaner houses and laundry than men, and that yard work comports better with men’s generally superior physical strength.” 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
