JACK IN the proverball work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” was unlikely to have been Australian. Most Australians are happy with the number of hours they work each week and believe they are achieving the right work/life balance. But a new report also found that nearly a quarter of workers would prefer fewer hours on the job to be able to participate in recreational and social activities or just have free time. The Australian Bureau of Statistics latest social trends survey, released today, found that in 2007 65 per cent of the workers aged 15 years or older felt they were working close to their preferred number of hours. However, 14 per cent of those surveyed between April and July 2007 wanted to work more hours, while 21 per cent would prefer to be working fewer hours, deemed as overemployed.
