    Did one class to gauge it and see if I had the time, right now I do not on 2nd shift. Need to get on 3rd shift eventually then I can continue to do more either part-time with more, or hopefully full-time student.

Some salaried people own businesses, which require them to work hours based on the current business situation. I appreciate your hard work for your family; I myself even had an additional part-time job a few years ago, but I don't see what this thread is really getting at except counting people's hours out of context.
    Well salaried or not in general the more hours you work chances are you are making more. Salaried people at my work, and higher paid hourly people drive newer cars, the ones that try everything to work a straight 40 or less do not. My point is, it is indeed hard to gauge how hard one works, but going by how many hours they put in a day is the best way I could come up with.

    I normally work about 60 hours a week. Lowest is 48, most is around 72. I have a baby daughter to take care of as well. I also do design and writing work here and there on contract on the side. I sleep like 4-5 hours a night. I am obviously Democrat. I support some of the ideas of OWS but as a whole think it's counter-productive (or not productive at all). Just trying to get a feel for how you all are...
    I have worked since I was 14. After grad school I went directly into 60-80 hour weeks for the next 25 years so that I could get back down to 40 hours and live comfortably as I glide to retirement in 10 years. Take the time to smell the daisies while you can.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    Re: How many hours do you work a week?

    I haven't worked fulltime in years. When I was younger I worked at bar tending or as a nursing asst. Over the years, I moved and became a cashier instead. Then 10 years ago I went to parttime. So I get whatever hours they dole out to me. Most times it's between 15-20, but in the winter, it can drop even lower. I did the fulltime thing all my life, and decided I only wanted whatever I could get from then on. I just like being around coworkers and the public. But parttime is enough to get me out of the house where I can be around people.

    Every hour I can get, but overtime is almost impossible to get these days. Actually the work load is so bad that I end up working "off the clock" a couple hours a week despite not getting paid... just to fricken' stay employed in this bad economy.

    Re: How many hours do you work a week?

    I work around 50 to 60 hours a week for a surface water treatment facility which includes 4 seperate plants. During the winter months I work less but always work a minimum of 40. There is less demand for water in winter months (less than 200 mgd) so our plants run lower flows. At lower flows things don't break as often. During the summer months when we a running close to maximum capacity our flows our over 500 mgd (million gallons per day).
