GoToMeeting did some research and made an interesting inforgraphic about work around the globe. They compared a few countries such as the UK, Brazil, Australia, South Africa, US, Germany and Sweden about how they work and other information such as difference in minimum wage. Did you know that South Africa had the highest most average working weekly hours with 43.3 hours and Germany with the least 34.5 hours per week.
What shocked me the most was the difference in the parental leaves after having a baby. The UK gives 52 weeks parental leave where the US only gives you 12 weeks. With booking holidays and including the national holidays in each country, Sweden gives out the most holidays with 36 but the US gives their workers 0 holidays! Here is the infographic for you to see:
