70% of men say they are breadwinner
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.”
