Yet another reason for women to do laundry!

new study says married men earn more if wives do the chores: "I just love these studies. ‘Honey, make me dinner; my salary depends on it!’" writes Jessica. "'Married men earn more than bachelors so long as their wives stay at home doing the housework, according to a report on Wednesday from Britain's Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER).' Oh please. Anyone--regardless of gender--would be able to concentrate on their career more if they had someone taking care of all their shit at home. This is just a thinly-veiled way of saying that women belong in the home. And if you think I’m being paranoid, check this out:


'A marriage might allow a husband and wife to focus their activities on tasks to which they are most suited. Traditionally, this would result in the man concentrating on paid work enabling him to increase productivity and in consequence his wages.'
Excuse me, I need to go puke now." (Feministing)
