A long stated observation on the nature of work as it relates to the gender pay gap, is explored without bias in this article. Greater attention to the reasons that men & women choose to divide their roles as they do would be fascinating, as would a breakdown of field of work versus format of gender division of roles. Why are couples choosing the male to work the long hours & the female to take the major portion of nurturing children? Is it traditional role pressure, external gender discrimination or employer bias re promotional policies? More work needs to be done & some follow up articles would add value to this piece too.

This is a well-written and sourced article, which emphasizes the reality of the demands placed on individuals in the modern labor market. No real issue making that case, and any employed person can likely relate that, yes, we work a lot. The trouble is that the fix is to simply re-structure work such that it doesn't demand so much of our time, or that such a re-structure would even have that result. By asserting this, the author discounts the fact that increased productivity is increased productivity: the people who in fact do more work have, (and have always in systems where one reaps the fruits of one's labor) earned more. For me, this article does a good job of framing the "problem", but offers hand waving in terms of designing solutions because "no body has to" work this much according to research. Sure, no one has to, but that's bee true for thousands of years (our closest animal cousins lounge around all day in the trees, while we busy ourselves), but the trouble is that we do work and we value work, and because we do there will always be a competitive advantage to the ape willing to sacrifice his daughter's softball practice to get a few more hours of work done. There's nothing offered here which addresses that reality, or even makes an examined case that this is in fact a problem. So yes: we are working ourselves to death, but I'm unsatisfied by the conclusion that we should "just stop" for "reasons".

While it certainly rings true with the experiences of my family, the main reason I trust this article is the reliance on multiple academic studies to back up the qualitative narrative.
