    How many hours do you work a week?

    I am just curious, because a lot of times I tend to want to side with the conservatives on here because seems like a lot of you are just bitching because you have to actually work a lot to make a lot of money so...how many hours do you work on average a week?

    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...

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I work part time, but no one is allowed over time. Hour caps enforced, regardless of performance or profits quotas reached or exceeded.

    Re: How many hours do you work a week?

    When I'm in the office I try pretty hard not to put in any more than 40 hours a week, though I usually end up working an hour or two of overtime each week. This is mainly because I'm salaried, so I don't get paid for overtime, and because every 5 or 6 weeks I go on a business trip for a week, and will end up putting in around 80 hours in 7 days, which I also don't get paid for.

    I work part time at a grocery store. I usually work 8 hour shifts, I get at least 24 hours a week in, but that may change soon as the holidays come in. For example, this week I am getting in 32 hours.

    Typically I put in about 50 hours a week

    That includes the shift change when I come in early to get information and stay late to pass it on. Along with the training aspects

    I might not get a paycheck - but I do "work" . . . remodeling the kitchen - I put in 6 - 10 hours a day, usually taking Sunday off.

    Re: How many hours do you work a week?

    It's weird at my office right now. It used to be reliable 50 hour weeks so I just worked that but now we have fewer people and alot more smaller jobs rather than a few larger ones so I'll go one week at 40 and the next at 60 and the next at 50. Whatever it takes to get out the workload that week. I'd say my average is 50 or slightly less.

    I work at a department store, 8 hours per day and 1 day off at week.

    So, 64 hours per week.

    Re: How many hours do you work a week?

    I'm salaried, and on average work 45 hours a week. However, a few times a year (like this past month) we'll be launching a project and I'll put in 70+.
