Shanghaiist Infographic by Sasha Padbidri
Do working stiffs in China log in the longest working hours in the world? Nope! The country that logs in the highest average number of daily working hours is Mexico, according to a survey conducted by the Huffington Post in 2011. We combined those figures with a recent survey conducted by China Daily on the working hours of major Chinese cities, which found that Guangzhou topped the list. Shanghai comes in as the 5th hardest-working in the world with a total of 8.89 hours a day, while India and Korea tie at 17/18th place with 8.1 hours each. Unsurprisingly, France ranks the lowest with 7.5 hours.
