Download: ’40 hour workweek’ is much longer, survey finds
The standard workweek is considered to be 40 hours, but a Gallup poll found very barely four in 10 people in the U.S. work exactly that much.
The average number hours worked per week was 47.
Only 8 percent of full-time employees say they work less than 40 hours.
Gallup used its annual Work and Education Survey to determine its findings. More than 1,000 adults working full time participated.
