The most hardworking countries in the world

Published

employees

New research into working habits from around the globe has revealed the countries with the longest working days, lunch breaks and commutes.

Which countries are the hardest-working in the world? Do you have any ideas who definitely would or wouldn’t be in the running?

The people at Printerland.co.uk were curious about this question so they set out to compile data on the working days of employees around the world.

The research examines everything from the length of commutes to the length of breaks and average working hours around the world. It found that employees based in Nigeria, Cameroon and South Korea have the longest shifts, clocking in at 12 hours on average.

The length of working days is exacerbated by other factors, such as the cultural pressure on South Korean staff to attend informal meetings and staff dinners, which can mean they don’t get the opportunity to head home until 9pm at night.

A similar pressure is felt by workers in Japan, a country that has been recently dogged by negative press surrounding the frequency of deaths from overwork.

In Nigeria, the toll of long working days is compounded by a gruelling three-hour commute, as a result of bad traffic and inadequate infrastructure. For similar reasons, workers in Pakistan also have to contend with extensive travel time to and from work.

Finland and Canada are tied for the shortest working day, coming in at six hours and 45 minutes. Meanwhile, workers in Romania can expect to work nine hours and 45 minutes.

Workers in Spain have the longest evenings due to their famous ‘siestas’, though some employees are opting to get home earlier as opposed to taking the protracted break, which seems to suggest that the practice is waning in popularity. Indeed, the Spanish government has been making some attempts to phase out the practice in order to get Spain more in line with other eurozone countries.

Greek people have the most frustrating commutes in all of Europe, spending an hour on the road each way. This is twice the European average and twice the commute of a UK worker, who spends half an hour getting to and from work.

Nigeria: Woman Dies During Church Deliverance in Lagos

Published

on

A 51-year-old woman, Taibat Kareem, has collapsed and died during a deliverance service in a Cherubim and Seraphim Church  community, Lagos after allegedly drinking a substance said to be given to her by the church prophet, Olowomeye Ola, for deliverance.



The issue provoked reactions from the residents who went to the church and brought out the pastor to mob him on the street.

However, before he could be mobbed, the Isheri Police Division moved to the church, arrested two suspects including the pastor and took them to the police station for interrogation.

The incident happened at Oriofe Street in Ijegun in the outskirts of Lagos where the church is located.

According to the residents, her supplier, one Ayodele Isaac, a herbalist, invited the late Taibat, who dealt in local herbs, to take some herbs for sale. She was going to take the herbs when Pastor Ola accosted her and told her that she needed deliverance. He then took her to the church for prayers; it was during the prayer session that Pastor Ola gave her a liquid substance to drink. Immediately she drank the substance, she collapsed on the ground inside the church.

 Pastor Ola reportedly took her to his own room where he allegedly tried to revive her. It was in the midst of the confusion that the residents raised the alarm, attacked the pastor and attempted to mob him before the police rescued him.

Lawyers in Egypt move to change president’s 2-term limit

Published

on

A host of Egyptian lawyers declared they have filed a court case to force the parliament to start a debate on amending a constitutional clause that bars President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi from running for a third term in 2022.



Ayman Abdel-Hakim Ramadan told The Associated Press on Saturday that a Cairo court will hold its first hearing on the case Dec. 23.

Egypt’s constitution was adopted in 2014, after el-Sissi, as defense minister, led the military’s ouster of a freely elected but divisive Islamist president.

El-Sissi was elected president later that year. This year, he won a second four-year term in office. He ran virtually unchallenged after authorities either jailed or intimidated potentially serious candidates out of the race.

Ramadan says el-Sissi has overseen an “incredible” number of achievements since 2014.
