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. In the U.S., we spend an average 100 minutes a day on routine housework, while in Mexico the time spent is nearly double. How do other countries compare?
