Women want to work more, FNV report

The capacity of 1.5 million women remains wasted, according to a report by the FNV union federation on Friday. Around six out of ten women have a paid job for an average of 29 hours a week.

Of those who do not work, 56% would like to, the report says. Furthermore, a quarter of employed women want to work more hours. Only 14% is interested in a longer working week.
