10 hardest working countries

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.

Poland

  • Average annual hours: 1,893
  • Average annual wages: $20,069

The average Polish worker averages 40 hours a week, but for about 10% of working men in the country, the work week extends more than 50 hours.

Temporary jobs are also quite common, with about one in five Polish workers employed on short-term contracts.
