Here’s how much more women could earn if household chores were compensated

From CNBC authored by Abgail Hess:

“Men outearn women in every country on earth. In the United States, women earn an average of $0.80 for every dollar earned by a man. Thisgap is even larger for African American and Latina women.

There are many causes for this pay gap, but one factor is that women are doing work they’re not getting paid for. Uncompensated labor is often referred to as “invisible work,” and includes essential household responsibilities like cleaning, child care and taking care of sick family members.

According to the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development, men in the United States spend 150.2 minutes a day — about 17.5 hours a week — doing unpaid labor. Women spend 243.2 minutes doing unpaid labor each day — about 28.4 hours a week. When you add both paid and unpaid work together, women still work longer hours.”
