Who Works The Most ?

The answer is surprising and designed only for hard-working people that will read this whole whole article.


The economic crisis, highest perks for not doing anything. Laziest people and nice beaches ideal for rest. Although, you have to forget about all these stereotypes because Greek work the most in Europe. 39,27 hours a week. At least in statistics. When you make coffee for work friends it is also counted as work hours.


My compatriots have only a little more time to rest. Poles work 36.98 hours a week, three more than laziest European nations as Germans and Dutch (39,5). Actually, what can be surprising, but it’s logical, people work less in richer countries. Usually they are just more effective. That’s why I have to say sorry, for this two nations mentioned before, for calling them lazy.


Americans feel overworked and many also fail to take their paid time off. The average U.S. workweek is 34.4 hours, according to data made available by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). However, that’s nowhere near the most hours worked compared to other countries around the world.

German workers came in last (or first, depending on your perspective) with an average workweek of just 26.37 hours. Sweden, where some businesses have shifted to a six-hour workday, ranked no. 29 on the OECD list with an average 30.94 hour workweek.
