There are Many of You Out There That Will Take Exception with This

From Clusterstock:
You might think that with all these layoffs, employers are working their current employees to the bone. Nope. Full-time workers have never worked shorter work weeks, according to the just-released unemployment report:

Weekly Hours (Establishment Survey Data)

In June, the average workweek for production and nonsupervisory
workers on private nonfarm payrolls fell by 0.1 hour to 33.0 hours--the
lowest level on record for the series, which began in 1964. The manu-
facturing workweek rose by 0.1 hour to 39.5 hours, and factory overtime
was unchanged at 2.8 hours. (emphasis theirs)
Okay, we know there people out there that are at least doubling this amount of hours right now (read: Big 4 tax associates). Plus Q2 reviews are coming up so audit teams are def going to start packing sleeping bags. Are you out there? Let us know how many hours you're putting in! Show this unemployment data who's doing the heavy lifting out there.

Employed Workers Have Never Worked Less
