Boss Complains That Woman Isn’t Available 24×7 For Work Like Male Colleagues, Twitter Reacts

No dreaded commutes. No managers or co-workers yelling around in the morning. No one stealing your favorite lunch. Working remotely is amazing but it comes with its own share of challenges. For instance, the line between personal and professional space has blurred so much that people are now expected to work 24×7.

Recently, a woman shared how her sister’s boss complained that she wasn’t working over the weekend (Read: Available 24×7) like her male colleagues. Her sister, who works as a data scientist, was asked to be more like her male counterparts who never switch off their work stations. What?!

The woman further mentioned how females bear more responsibilities while working from home compared to their male co-workers. Not only do they have to manage office work but they also do all the domestic chores at home.

Not only that, it’s inadequate to expect someone to be available 24×7 for work. Irrespective of your gender, working non-stop is not only bad for your mental health but also for your emotional well-being.
