WORK - Mexicans working the longest

Among OECD countries, Mexico is where the population carries the longest day of work, dedicating 10 hours a day to paid work and unpaid (to clean or prepare meals, for example). The average in the OECD is 8 hours. These figures come from the report "Society at a Glance 2011 - OECD Social Indicators", released April 12.

"The report shows that Mexicans are the ones who spend more than 3 hours per day on household chores," said the Mexican daily El Informador, stating that the kitchen takes up a large part of that time.
