The smartest housekeepers in America could be as good as an average NFL player, a new study shows.
The study, which analyzed more than 300 housekeepers from the United States and Canada, found that in the United Kingdom, England, France and Germany, the average householder had better housekeeping skills than a professional player, or a professional coach, but they were not as good in the Netherlands and Canada.
The research comes at a time when housekeeping is seen as a career path for many people who don’t have the luxury of having children.
But the study, published Wednesday in the journal ACS Appliances, showed that in most countries, homekeepers were at least as smart and well-rounded as those in the NFL, MLB and NHL.
“I think there is a real sense of recognition, that the skills that housekeepers have are so well-earned that people recognize them,” said study author and professor of human resources at the University of Wisconsin-Madison David Krieger.
The U.K. and Canada have among the lowest levels of housekeeping-related violence and absenteeism in the world, according to the study.
That means, it says, that a professional housekeeper would not only be more likely to perform well in their career, but could also be more successful in the workplace.
It’s also possible that housekeeping jobs might be good opportunities for some of the country’s brightest young people to make a difference in the lives of others, said Krieer, a former president of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
“There’s a lot of interest in the opportunities for young people in the workforce.
They have to go out and get a degree and start their career in a different field,” he said.
“So, there’s definitely potential for people in these professions to take advantage of this opportunity.”
In the U.S., housekeepers earn a median salary of $52,934 in 2017, up from $50,938 in 2016, according the U, but the wage gap is not as wide as it is in some European countries, such as France and Spain.
In the United Nations, the report found that women earn 70% of what men earn in their professions, but men earn 77% of their female counterparts.
Women earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by men in the same positions.
The findings highlight the importance of educating people about their profession, Krie, a member of the University’s College of Business Administration, said.
The study was done by the Institute for Labor Research at the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council.
The survey was funded by the U., United States of America and Canada through the International Institute for Research on Socio-economic Development.
