A campaign against the 'long hours culture' launches on Friday - despite the fact that we enjoy a shorter working week. As the TUC gears up for 'work your proper hours day', official figures show that the average employee works nearly two fewer hours a week than in 1984. Then the average working week was 33.8 hours. The most recent figure, for October to December last year, was only 32.1 hours. The TUC believes that unpaid overtime helps to explain the discrepancy.
