Poll: How many hours a week do you work?

With staff at the European Parliament refusing to work for a 40-hour week, we’re wondering how much time readers of TheJournal.ie spend with their noses to the grindstone…

IT’S EMERGED TODAY that staff at the European Parliament are refusing to consider working a 40-hour week.

The trade union which represents the staff has said that plans to ask workers to stay an extra 30 minutes a day have hit a dead end, as it would have a negative impact on their home and personal lives.

Union reps have also said that while staff often get a half day or a day off on a Friday, they put in long hours Monday to Thursday. A flexi-time system allows them to take time off in lieu if they go over 37.5 hours a week.

It got us to thinking how much time you’re clocking in for every week, whether it be at home or outside the home…

How many hours a week do you work?
