Get out of the hamster wheel
Unfortunately, the article leaves possible reasons for this in the dark. Can we see an overload and too high a concentration of tasks on individual clerks as the cause of this clear discrepancy?
The mirror stated in any case an increasing attitude of the career refusal on the part of the employees. In his article "Advocates: career? Without me!"Makes it clear that just the employees with high potential are no longer willing to run at any price in the company's Hamsterrad on the spot.
Stable instead of flexible
There is a clear trend in part-time employment: according to the IWH, this has been increasing steadily for several years (and leads to a growing difference in salaries).
The years-long policy of flexibilisation of the labor market seems to have reached its limits: Too much flexibility does not promote a baby boom, but rather creates precarious working and living conditions: temporary contracts, (low-paid) temporary work and high distances, which are taken in favor of a job , undermine family planning. It lacks an essential factor: stability.
Equal instead of unequal
Women also want something from the career cake. They are actually twice as bad, because the same salary for the same performance still remains a matter of gender - as the Focus decodes with an accurate salary scale for 150 occupations in its current issue.
In addition, women with children do not have a complete professional life. This can be a problem if they are in temporary employment, they are not prolonged and after the Babypause inevitably a new job search is pending.
Employers are in demand
Thus, reconciling work and family life is often wishful thinking, unless flexibilisation also applies to employers.
The solution: job sharing, homeoffice, company KITA
Flexible working hours, job sharing, home office or corporate KITA: Find the solution here. In my opinion, a family-friendly policy does not work better with additional care allowance for private households. But it must be invested in where people are also economically involved - at the workplace.
According to the child care network, this is a further result of the study on the decline in childbirth, West German parents only benefit very little. Only 28% agree with the statement that KITAs contribute to everyday relief.
