Hi everyone Do you work 8 hours a day? Or less? Right now while I am waiting that the Hotel where I will go to work open I dont work 8 hours because I am just helping in few things but when it opens I will. But I heard that in some countries people work only 6 hours a day. How does it work in your country? Please share

Who that can work that amount of time I think it's a blessed thing. On the other side.. it can cause health problems for example sitting down for so many hours hmm..

in the Philippines, we are really working 8 hours or more! in my case that i am a teacher , I work 8 hours in school but there are times that i carried my work at home. recording test scores, making grades, making lesson plans, making powerpoint presentation, because it is not enough time in school. we have 55-70 students per classroom.

I think the 6 hour a day is something they tried in Sweden but don`t know if they do that now. Here in my country 8+ can be sure, and if the next day you tell, you need to go 5 min earlier they will show you the hour.

I work 9 to 5 including breaks so it's not quite 8 hours a day but considered full-time.
