Abstract

Firm’s time greediness and the division of labour in the household .

Although the body of literature documenting the division of labour between partners is large and continuously expanding, little is known about how demands and expectations from the workplace affect the division of labour between partners and how spouses use strategies to manage, or ‘govern’, the conflicting demands of work and family. Using data on 242 Dutch female employees, their partners and their employers, the results from multilevel analysis show that the more demanding the woman's job is, the larger her share in paid work and the smaller her share in household work are. These effects are moderated by both workplace governance practices and household governance practices. effects are moderated by both workplace governance practices and household governance practices.
