Working Too Hard?
Filed under: General
Posted by: site admin @ 8:41 am

According to CNNmoney.com, "U.S. workers produce an average $63,885 of wealth per person per year, making them the world’s most productive. Longer hours are part of the reason (no surprise, right?). Americans work an average of 1,804 hours a year–compared to 1,564 for the French (viva la France!) and a mere 1,407 for Norwegians."

Norway, anyone?

    Doesn’t surprise me a bit. We can be pretty naive to the fact that we work so hard to make things easier, more efficient, and better, however we don’t take into consideration that our personal lives are going down the drain. Just take a look at the % divorce rates, people with high blood pressure, obesity, etc… Its shocking. Yeah Norway, when is the next scheduled flight?
