Women do more unpaid work than men
A report that won’t come as a surprise to many women – they do the most unpaid work in the country.
New figures from the Federal Statistics Office show the value of unpaid work in Switzerland is worth CHF 408bn. 61% of unpaid work is by women.
Most of the work is household related – such as chores and child care. But also a significant amount time is looking after aging relatives.
Women spend about 28 hours a week on household chores, men about 10 hours a week less.
