Taiwanese fathers spend little time with kids: survey

TAIPEI -- Taiwanese fathers can afford only slightly more than one hour per day on average with their children, according to the results of a survey released Thursday to mark Aug. 8 Father's Day.

The survey, conducted by the Yes 123 job website, found that 60.1 percent of fathers often have to work overtime, with their work hours averaging 10.1 hours per day.

The time spent is markedly less than that of working mothers, who have an average 108 minutes per day with their children, according to a previous survey by the job site.

The latest survey was conducted between July 29 and Aug. 6 among 596 working fathers with children. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.01 percentage points.

What a small sample, only 596. I bet it isn't a representative sample either. But just goes to show what we all know, people are over worked and underpaid in Taiwan as I bet most of them didn't get paid for their overtime!

Quit being a little b**ch and stand up for your rights. Employment conditions will never improve if you accept them by doing nothing. You have no right to complain about others earning more money for less work if you never do anything about it.
