Americans average work week: 47 hours, while part-time employment dropped (another ObamaCare myth destroyed)

Not much I can add to the latest Gallup Poll numbers showing how much harder we're really working despite stagnant paychecks. 
Adults employed full time in the U.S. report working an average of 47 hours per week, almost a full workday longer than what a standard five-day, 9-to-5 schedule entails. In fact, half of all full-time workers indicate they typically work more than 40 hours, and nearly four in 10 say they work at least 50 hours.

But the percentage of workers with full-time employment now is 43%, down from about 50% before the Great Recession.

Part-timers are about 9% of the adult population, also consistent with poll results over the past 14 years, Gallup said.
