Tradesmen Put In The Longest Hours

Tradesmen Put In The Longest Hours

Britain's army of tradesmen is working longer hours than bankers in a bid to squeeze more jobs in, according to recent figures.

The research, from Screwfix, has found that the average tradesman works between 41 and 50 hours a week, with 20 per cent working more than 50 hours a week.

In addition to long working weeks, tradesmen have been found to ignore the annual statuary holiday entitlement of 28 days, including bank holidays, with one in six taking fewer than 10 days' leave each year.

However, the study revealed tradespeople appear to enjoy working this way, with 33 per cent spending their leisure time doing DIY.
