WIESBADEN – In 2016, roughly 2.6 million persons in employment aged 15 to 74 years wanted to work more hours (underemployed), while 1.2 million persons in employment wanted to work less (overemployed). The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that all underemployed persons in part-time and full-time employment usually worked an average 28.9 hours per week and wanted to work 10.9 hours more. All overemployed people – full-time or part-time – usually worked an average 41.6 hours per week in 2016 and wanted to work 11.0 hours less. When asked for their working time preferences, respondents were also asked to take into account that more working hours would involve correspondingly higher earnings and fewer hours correspondingly lower earnings.For further information:Dr. Martina Rengers,tel: +49 (0) 611 / 75 42 71,contact form
