Where in the world do workers toil the most each year? The United States is high on the list, but a few other countries work even harder.

Slovak Republic

  • Average annual hours: 1,749
  • Average annual wages: $19,068

Flexible work schedule? What's that?

Similar to Russia, part-time work is practically non-existent in the Slovak Republic. Only 4% of workers in the country work fewer than 30 hours a week.
