American women work longer hours than Europeans

It seems American women work longer hours than their European counterparts, according to a report put together by Credit Suisse.

A chart included in the research report shows that 65% of American women work more than 40 hours a week, compared to 30% of German women and 20% of French. The UK has the second-lowest percentage of women working more than 40 hours, yet the highest number working between one and 19 hours.

Interestingly, while the proportion of women in work is lower in Japan than the UK, the ones in jobs tend to work longer hours than Brits.

However, 2014 research by Stanford University found that working longer hours doesn’t translate to higher output.
