Unpaid Work Around the World

Cooking, cleaning, walking the dog, childcare. Most of us have two options when it comes to those daily tasks: pay someone to do it or do it yourself, at the expense of your time. Then again, for many there isn’t a choice, whether it’s because they can’t afford to outsource that type of work or because it is part of their cultural setup.
