You must think you work really hard and long. But how long is long and who does more work than the rest? The economics website FRED just added a bunch of new economic data which makes this question very easy to examine.
The average full-time American employee works right around 1,700 hours per year.
So how does this compare to the French? The French used to work as much as the Americans, but they've cut back and now work a lot less.
Then, you'll want to compare this to the Germans. These days, Germans work even fewer hours per year than the French do.
But just when you think that the Americans work the most, check out Singapore.
And obviously, it'll be hard to beat Korea and Hong Kong, all of the East Asian economies crush the U.S. in hours worked per year.
