70% of men say they are bread­win­ner

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

SEVEN out of 10 men still feel they need to be the main fi­nan­cial provider in the fam­ily, a poll found.

But at the same time, 46% also felt it was their re­spon­si­bil­ity to be their chil­dren’s pri­mary carer.

The study, by Utopia, and The Hobbs Con­sul­tancy, found 21% of men thought their em­ploy­ers dis­cour­aged them from tak­ing on par­ent­ing du­ties.

Daniele Fian­daca, of “cul­ture change busi­ness” Utopia, called for “in­clu­sive work­places which work for all gen­ders”.

Hobbs founder Rox­anne Hobbs said: “The fact that men feel they can’t bal­ance their ca­reers with fam­i­lies is wor­ry­ing.”
