One in Four Americans Work Between 10:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M.
Working the graveyard shift is cool if it fits your lifestyle. It's NOT cool if you're working the graveyard shift AFTER you already worked all day long.I know I work odd hours (5:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., lunch at 10:00 a.m.), but I'm used to it, I guess. But I try my darndest to not work after work, if you know what I mean? I try to get everything done for our websites before I leave, so I won't be tempted to log in on my own time when I get home.
Not everybody, though. A new study just came out that proved, once again, that Americans have become insane workaholics where even people in Japan would probably be like, "Whoa, pump the brakes, bro." Check this out . . .
One in four Americans work between 10:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M. That includes people working the graveyard shift . . . but also includes people who answer work email or do projects when they're home for the night.
One in three Americans work on weekends.
People who already work crazy amounts, like 60 hours a week, are more likely to ALSO put in extra time at home.
The people who work late at night are most likely to be the people at a company who are making the lower salaries. Doesn't seem right, does it?!
What's your work schedule? Is it set every day or does it change by the week?
