Greek workers, salaried and not, they work on average significantly longer in relation to the workers of the other EU member states. This results from a survey by the French Institute Rexecode on the basis of which the average Greek worker employed almost 2,000 hours a year compared to 1,679 hours which is the European average.

More hours than the Greeks only Romanians and Bulgarians work in Europe, while the Dutch, Danes, Finns, Swedes, Austrians and Germans work less than 1,600 hours a year.

Greek employees work over 1,900 hours a year, while the European average is 1,792 hours. The Greek self-employed work almost 2,400 hours a year, with the corresponding average European term not exceeding 2,200 working hours.
