Citing the survey, online recruiting agency yes123 indicated that 87.4 percent of respondents said they will spend Mother’s Day with their mothers on May 8, slightly lower than 88.2 percent recorded in a similar survey last year.
The job agency said that despite the slightly lower figure this year, the percentage was still above 80 percent, a threshold it has always exceeded since the annual survey was launched in 2014.
