American scientists were able to calculate in which country live the most hardworking employees. Were taken into account many factors: the duration of the working day, and results, and the retirement age in the country.
It turned out that in the US on the true work, the average adult spends about 26 hours. This is 20% more than the working people of Europe.
In Europe the most hardworking were the Swiss. They work 25 hours a week. The Italians, for example, work only 19 hours a week.
About the data on the countries of Asia, Africa and Australia not reported. Note, in their study, the researchers took into account only the effective working time, not total time spent at the workplace.
