How many hours we are really working

Data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) show that the average annual hours worked by employed people in 2020 were

  • 25.6 per week in Germany
  • 34 per week for Americans
  • 32 per week for Canadians
  • 26 per week in the UK
  • 30 hours per week for Spaniards and
  • 31 hours per week for the Japanese.

These numbers show that the average American already work equivalent to a four-day workweek. However, US data includes high-school and college-age workers who work less than 40 hours per week.
