Are you one of those women doing more than their fair share of unpaid overtime?
According to a recent TUC report nearly 5million British workers regularly put in unpaid overtime, especially teachers, lawyers, business people and media workers. And almost 40% of single women in their 30s work unpaid extra hours, compared with 26% of men of the same age. It’s said that if women want to get on at work they need to put in longer hours than anyone else. But the more women do this, the longer it will continue to be an expectation of them.
