Flavorwire has released an infographic that shows the standard work hours from around the world, according to stats released by the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development. Topping the chart is Mexico, Japan and Canada, working 1.8, 0.9 and 0.5 hours more (respectively) each day than the OECD average of 8.1 hours. On the other end of things, the countries that work the least are mainly in Europe, including Belgium (7.1 hours), Denmark (7.4 hours), Germany (7.4 hours) and France (7.5 hours).

The infographic takes into account paid and unpaid work. Unpaid work includes tasks like cooking, cleaning, gardening, shopping and physical childcare. The infographic also reveals that women are still spending four times more than men doing household chores such as cooking and cleaning.
