Latest research from Eurostat shows that Greeks work more than the other Europeans. Weekly they work 42 hours and the other European Union citizens work about 40.3 and Eurozone citizens – 40 hours.

Based on official statistics for the second trimester of 2009, Czech citizens come second with 41.6 hours per week, third are the Austrians (41.5 hours) and forth are the Polish (41.4 hours). The “laziest” ones are the Scandinavians – the Swedish work 38.1 hours per week and the Danish – 37.8 hours.

Based on the research the smallest percentage of part-time workers is in Greece – 6% out of all workers. The average percentage in the 27 EU country members is 18.8% and in the Eurozone – 20%. The trend shows that this percentage is increasing because during the same trimester in 2008 the percentage was 5.5%.

Most people working part-time are in Holland, where almost every second citizen works under such conditions – 48.2%. The lowest percentage for the whole EU for people working part-time was registered in Bulgaria – 2.6%.
