Men & Women Struggle to Get on at Work and Find Time for Family


Jamie Doward at the Observer takes a look at family work-life balance and the ‘fatherhood penalty’.

Looking at the 2017 Modern Families Index:

The survey confirms what many already know: that while men are still paid better than women, a growing number believe chasing a career means they miss out on a decent family life.

Half of the fathers interviewed for the survey of 2,750 people said balancing work and family was increasingly a source of stress. A third said they regularly felt burned out and one in five said they were always doing extra hours in the evening or weekends so they could spend some time with their children during their waking hours.
