Shortest Work Weeks Around The World
A four-day work week EVERY week? Count me in!
I’m not lazy, mostly, but come on, who wouldn’t jump at the chance to have a 3-day weekend every week?
In the Netherlands, they work an average of 29 hours a week and make an average of $47,000 per year! Dutch laws promote a work-life balance. Nice.
In Denmark, the average work week is 33 hours and the average pay is $46,000 per year. Plus 5 weeks of vacation each year. Sigh.
Head to Ireland for an average 34 hours per work week and $51,000 a year.
In Germany, it’s 35 hours per week. Swiss people are some of the happiest in the world. They earn about the same as an average U.S. worker, but they work 155 hours less each year.
Sound good? There’s more!
