    Working hours

    My sister just said that in America most normal people work 8-7 and only get 10 days holiday. Say it ain't so.

    I know holiday entitlements over there are a lot lower. Not sure about general working hours but there is certainly far less regulation around the treatment of workers. Capitalism, innit

    What is normal?

    Avg work week is now 47 hours per the press. For the few who actually work.

    I work a 6 week rotational shift pattern consisting of 7am-5pm, 12pm-10pm, 9pm-7am, 7am-7pm, 7pm-7am shifts.

    I work 2 weekends out of every 6, as I work 10hr and 12 hr shifts I also get additional rest days to make up for longer working hours, as well as my 30 days holiday a year and 8 for Bank holidays

    When I was a prof, I worked 3-4 days/week and had +4 months off every summer (mid-April until September), plus all the other holidays + 3 weeks at christmas, 1 reading week in Fall, 1 reading week in February...uh, why did I quit again?

    Now I work 6 days/week and can't take any holiday time...at least this year.
