Dubliners are the laziest…

What the rest of the island have long suspected of Dubliners: they have the cushiest jobs in the country. They are:

…putting in just over 34 hours a week, or six hours 52 minutes a day — the lowest in Ireland, according to a new survey. This is almost one-and-a-half hours less than those living in Munster, and Connacht and Ulster, who are clocking up almost 36 hours a week, or seven hours 10 minutes a day, at work. Leinster residents outside Dublin work, on average, seven hours, four minutes a day, or 35 hours 18 minutes a week.

Jan Battles reckons this may owe as much to the time spent in traffic jams on the way into the office as anything else.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
