“Both entities, which analyze the indicator of total work time in the region, citizens of Latin America and the Caribbean over 15 years of age, work on average 53.8 hours a week between paid and unpaid work”, Caretas published on their website.
Peru is the second country where the population works more hours, but, unlike Mexico, the Andean nation has “a little more” gender equality, Caretas said.
“Men work 60.3 hours a week and women 62.3, being only two hours apart. However, if we stop to observe the differences between the number of hours between paid and not, the picture changes”, the aforementioned website said.
Of the 62.3 hours worked by women, only 22.6 are paid, while men are paid 44.5 hours of the 60.3 they work per week.
