My today visualization is about long working hours in main job by sex, age, professional status and occupation in EU. It was interesting to observe that in Lithuania only 0.7% of employed persons are usually working 49 hours or more per week which is lowest in European Union for last 10 years.
Employees who work overtime hours experience numerous mental, physical, and social effects. Significant effects include stress, lack of free time, poor work-life balance, and health risks. As countries are aiming to reduce work hours to increase productivity, other countries can learn from Lithuania as they still manage to increase their GDP in 10 years.
In Europe 9.0 percent of employed persons are usually working 49 hours or more per week. Turkey has the highest percentage of people working 49 hours or more per week (30.6%).
