How many hours do you work?

An EU Parliament vote means the UKís current opt-out from maximum working week laws is likely to be scrapped in 2011. This means itíll be legally impossible to exceed 48hrs of work per week, regardless of the job you do. I thought itíd be interesting to see how many MoneySavers this change would impact, by asking...

In a typical week, how many hours do you work for paid employment?

If you have more than one job, combine the hours for each together. If thereís no such thing as a typical week, average it out.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
