For 10 years, unpaid work in the home has not been counted as 'real work' by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It's time that it is again!
Domestic labour has recently been estimated to be equivalent to as much as 40% of GDP. That's more than mining and agriculture industries combined.
We don't respect domestic work enough and it's an insult to both the people who have traditionally done most of it – women – and to the men who have taken up the role in the years since 2006.
Stand with Janelle by signing this petition and let it be known that housework is real work!
