【看英文中國郵報學英文】人力銀行今(5)日公布調查指出,職場爸爸平均每日工時高達10個小時,近2成每天沒有時間和孩子相處,在工作表現上的自我評分雖然有73.9分,但在身為「父親角色表現」上卻不及格,平均僅有52.8分,更有1成的人覺得自己在「父職表現」分數是0。

A new survey published by an employment agency on Aug. 5 shows that “working fathers” work as much as 10 hours every day, including 20 percent of them spending no time with their children. When asked to grade themselves, working fathers would grade themselves 73.9 points on average, but only 52.8 points as dad. Ten percent would even grade themselves “zero” as a father.

根據人力銀行調查顯示,職場爸爸平均長達3.6年沒有加薪,84.6%表示不滿意目前的薪水,其中有62%因此有轉職念頭。該調查也發現,每天工時平均10小時,其中在9小時以上的,就佔了74.7%,代表有近四分之三的爸爸,陷入過勞風險當中。

According to the survey, the average working dads haven’t had a salary raised in 3.6 years. Also, 84.6 percent of them are unsatisfied with their current pay, and 62 percent are considering switching jobs because of their low wage. The survey also shows that fathers work an average of 10 hours per day, with 74.7 percent working more than nine hours a day. This indicates that nearly three-quarters of local fathers are on the verge of a burnout.

台灣「加班文化」盛行,導致職場爸爸每逢上班日,平均每天只能與小孩相處69.3分鐘,其中自認幾乎沒有相處時間的,比例也有18.5%。調查也指出,一整個星期平均僅有2.9天,能和子女共進晚餐,但還是有15.4%的爸爸忙到連一天都沒法和小孩吃晚飯,因此仍然有39.3%的職場爸爸自認與子女關係疏離。

Overtime work is common in Taiwan, meaning dads spend on average 69.3 minutes with their children on workdays, and 18.5 percent said they have no time with their kids. The survey further points out that working fathers get to have dinner with their children 2.9 days per week, and 15.4 percent of fathers cannot even have one dinner with their kids. Almost 40 percent of working fathers think they are not close with their children.

楊宗斌表示,職場爸爸要同時兼顧父親、兒子與丈夫三種身份,成為苦命的人生「三明治族」或「夾心餅乾」,不論是透過政府或企業力量,都要從照顧「員工全家人」的角度出發,打造對職場爸爸更為友善的工作環境,其他像是落實生養育補貼、員工福利,除了保障工作權益,也應該提供像是「購屋安家」的協助。

Asked about the survey, a spokesperson of Yes123 (Yes123求職網), Yang Tsung-Pin (楊宗斌), said working fathers have to be a father, a son and a husband at the same time, adding that the government or employers should take more care of not only of employees but the employee’s family. They should also create a friendly working environment for working fathers. Yang further recommend a effective implementation of welfare through which working parents could receive an allowance and some assistance to purchase a house when settling down. ●
