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 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?
