In 2002, Hungary considered shortening the official work week to 38 hours, with even the country's prime minister on board.
But the proposal never became law, and about 71% of employed Hungarians still work 39 to 41 hours a week.
Like in other Central European countries, the share of part-time work is very low. Only about 5% of Hungarian workers average fewer than 30 hours a week.
Americans work an average of 38 hours a week. Here are 10 industrialized nations where workers have shorter hours.
