Labor Day Stats

The local news did a quick bit this morning on the average numbers of hour worked by folks in various countries and it was interesting enough to pause it and write it down for you all there.

Hours at Work:
US - 1804 per year
France- 1564 per year
Norway - 1407 per year
China - 2200+ per year

Yes, Chinese workers average 400 more hours per year than Americans. They've got to keep up with demand for badly designed and lead painted toys for kids, ya know?

And I will try to do my part to get to 1804 hours next year since there's no way, no how I came close to that this year.
