The average working week is 37 hours, I do 45 hours  :110:. Most people get between 20 and 25 days holiday + 8 days bank holiday , which include Christmas,  new years day, Easter etc (public holidays).

Most people don't work Saturday & Sunday.

I think we do better than your average over in the USA.


I see.  It must just be the aggregate postings that make it seem like you all have a lot of holidays.  I work for a company of 55,000 associates.  I have 27 days of paid time off accrued per year with a 264-hour carry over to the following year.  We also have 8 holidays.  Wife's company went to unlimited time off, which is a growing trend but is rare.  We are pretty about the same number of hours.  Anyhow, thanks for clearing that up!
