Rethinking the Work-Life Equation

Fairly good piece. One slightly critical comment though. While I agree that work/life issues aren’t just about families, I’m a bit wary of completely taking family out of the equation. Before I had a kid, my spare time involved a fair bit of voluntary work with a criminal justice reform organisation, and long distance off-road running. Those were both time-intensive activities that could totally be used as examples of why people with no dependants still value workplace flexibility and don’t want to have to work long hours. But having a toddler is a whole different ballgame. There is no spare time.
