MOSCOW, 8 March – RIA Novosti. Men are more active than women taking additional part-time work, but during the crisis the weaker sex is more interested in it, according to the study of the platform for remote work Zlaker, which is at the disposal of RIA Novosti.
More than 1000 respondents from various regions of Russia who are not users of the platform took part in the study. “Additional work became especially relevant against the background of the unfavorable economic situation associated with the pandemic, 20.7% of men declared their readiness to do a part-time job because of the crisis. The pandemic influenced women even more – 24.3% of respondents thought about part-time work during this period, “the materials say.
At the same time, more than a third of the respondents said that they had additional earnings before the crisis: then 36.9% of women and 45% of men could boast of having a second job.
According to the study, an equal number of men and women (12.9% each) are ready to take a part-time job when additional expenses are planned – for example, on the eve of holidays.
