Workholics Anonymous

I'm guessing the numbers found in the UK would compare favorably with the US work force.

The average British manager works the equivalent of 40 days a year in unpaid overtime, research into the nation's long-hours culture revealed yesterday.

A survey of more than 1,500 managers found 89% regularly worked more than their contracted hours. In spite of prolonged soul-searching in boardrooms about helping executives achieve a better work-life balance, this proportion remains almost the same as eight years ago. |Guardian|
