Now if you want to go back to when women washed clothes and dishes for six kids and did it by hand you would have a point but modern women had it made in the shade.
    Well then you should be happy that they work outside of the home then.

    Unemployed is a different thing than being a stay at home mom. Unemployed means they lost a job and that is very stressful.

    So they tell us anyway.

    It does not. Unemployed means you don't currently have a job. That's all.

    The country was better off when they stayed home but they could have done something better with that idle time than watching soaps that is for sure.

    Wrong. You are not unemployed unless you lost a job and are looking for another one.

    That's nothing more than an opinion on your part.

    No, that is only if you are collecting unemployment. If you aren't working, you are unemployed. The study says nothing about the women collecting unemployment, it just says a lot of them are unemployed which would mean they aren't working.

    http://www.bls.gov/tus/tables/a1_2012.pdf


    It is in the charts.
    Sex - chores/work - Total

    Men - 1.29/4.17 - 5.46
    Women - 2.17/2.94 - 5.11

    Now throw in Child Care:

    Men +.27 = 5.73
    Women +.53 = 5.64


    So when you count work, childcare and household chores together your chart shows that men do more work.

    So where is all this life threatening extra labor coming from? Not the traditional sources, it appears.

    You are not counted as unemployed unless you lost a job and are seeking new employment, that is fact. That is how gov comes up with official unemployment numbers.
