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.
