Infographic: Are you working too hard?

This fascinating infographic takes a bird’s eye view of the global workforce – and makes you wonder: are you working too hard?

  • Did you know: The Ikung Bushmen work just two-and-a-half days per week, rarely more than 6 hours per day?
  • Famously, Henry Ford was a big proponent of shorter working hours – reducing from 12 hours to 8 hours.

Take a look at the infographic below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
