Chores. Er­rands. Jobs. What­ever you call the cook­ing, clean­ing, wash­ing, child­care, fer­ry­ing fam­ily and look­ing af­ter elderly rel­a­tives, you know it’s hard work. But for all of this emo­tional labour – some­thing women of­ten feel they’re tak­ing on an un­fair share of – there is no payslip at the end of the month. Which is why it is grat­i­fy­ing that a new Of­fice for Na­tional Sta­tis­tics re­port has sug­gested that each per­son do­ing all this life ad­min is pro­vid­ing £19,000 of services to our econ­omy. Since this won’t re­flect in our bank bal­ances, let’s hope we can at least make it an equally shared load at home.
