Large sections of Europe's workforce are too knackered after work to do household tasks and stand no chance of achieving a work-life balance. The European Foundation's European Quality of Live survey found 23 per cent of EU workers complain they are too tired to carry out household tasks and about 15 per cent of people in the new member states report difficulties in fulfilling family responsibilities because of time spent at work. The survey found women, more often than men, experience problems in balancing work and family responsibilities. People who work more than 48 hours a week generally report being less able to reconcile their working and non-working lives. The European Foundation says these issues will be examined at this year's Foundation Forum 2004, to run from 3-4 November in Dublin.
