Employment FAQ

Federal Reserve Economic Data shows that employed Americans work on average 1,700 hours per year. This figure has been relatively stable since the 1980s. In terms of the 40 hour work week, 85.8 percent of males exceed 40 hour of work per week and 66.5 percent of females work more than 40 hours per week. With Americans spending so much of their time at work our quality of life can be substantially affected by our employment status and the laws that govern the workplace.
