Average mom works equivalent of 2 full-time jobs, study says

A new study commissioned by Welch’s shows that the average mom works the equivalent of two full-time jobs per week.

According to Working Mother, the survey of 2,000 American mothers with children ages 5 to 12 found average working moms start their days around 6:23 a.m. and don’t finish the job or family-related duties until about 8:31 p.m. — that’s equivalent to working 14 hours per day.

The study revealed that if the time the average working mom spends at her paid position and her work at home were added, it would total 98 hours a week. That’s more than two full-time jobs — a 14-hour shift per day.

When it comes to “me time,” the average mom reported having only one hour and seven minutes to herself each day.

If you’re a working mom, do you agree with the study’s findings?
