Working Singles Find Work More Demanding Than Their Married Counterparts
Being single in the workplace has it challenges. When it comes to finding someone to work a weekend shift or take a spur-of-the-moment business trip, bosses and supervisors often rely on those with fewest familial obligations to pick up the slack.
But that doesn't mean that single workers like it. A growing number of them are fighting back and demanding time to do the things that they feel are equally as important as raising children, tending to elderly parents or other family demands.
