The MUT has received the following message from Ayrton Zarb: Over the past decade we have seen a gradual increase in the number of females employed. In a dissertation that I’m currently working on, I’m studying whether the introduction of ‘Free childcare’ had an effect on the number of hours worked by Maltese mothers. If you are a working mother with a child between 3 months and 3 years who hasn’t started kindergarten yet, can you please help me by filling a two minute questionnaire as found below?
