Portugal in 5th place for countries where workers work longest hours

Portugal is in 5th place on the table of European countries with the longest working days. Greece leads the table, with 13% of workers putting in 49-plus hours per week (when the European average is just 7.3% of workers on this kind of timetable). According to Eurostat, 9.4% of Portuguese workers have ‘prolonged working hours’ – meaning they work 49 or more hours per week, which is nine hours more than is technically legal.
