Democratizing Access to Personal Helpers

For every timesaving device humans have invented, we have found new ways to fill that time with more work—much of which is unpaid. A recent survey by Pew found that men and women spend 11.8 and 21.3 hours per week respectively on non-paid work such as childcare and housework. For every minute we’ve saved through dishwashers and microwaves, we’ve found new ways to use them doing something else.
