Two German towns will help workers with the housework. A new project will help people who want to work more. They will get vouchers to get help with the housework. This will support family life and give the government more money. The government will get more money because people will pay more tax.

Women work less than they want to. They do housework and look after the family. If women worked more, they would get a voucher. They could use this to pay for help with the housework. The new system would create jobs. A spokesman said: "With professional help in the home, it is easier to balance work and family life."
