Who Works the Most?

Filed under: General HR Buzz10:06 am

How does the average American work day stack up against other nations? A recently updated study by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development shows that the US is pretty middle of the road.

Japan, Korea and China lead the way with the longest paid work day. Belgium, Denmark and Germany have the shortest.
The study also looked at unpaid work time such as cooking, household chores and shopping. Mexico had the overall longest day when factoring in paid and unpaid work.
Results showed that the people in the US spend the least amount of time cooking each day (30 minutes). Incidentally, the US also has the highest obesity rates.
