調查顯示 台灣人平均一天工作九小時

Most Taiwanese work 9 hours a day on average, survey says

Taiwan is a nation of workaholics, who work a 2,282 hours a year, or 9.63 hours per day, if they take two days off per week, resulting in a whopping 84 percent of them claiming that long hours have negatively affected their health or quality of life, according to a survey.

台灣是一個充滿工作狂的國家,據調查顯示,如果週休二日,算起來一年工時為兩千兩百八十二個小時,平均一天工作九點六三個小時,高達百分之八十四上班族,表示長時間工作已經為健康與生活品質帶來負面影響。

As well as health concerns, many respondents "24 percent of them" also worried that an onerous work load would affect their quality of life.

除了健康狀況,有二成四受訪者也擔心超時工作會影響生活品質。

Also, 19 percent of people worried most that they would have no time to spend with their families due to overtime hours, with biggest concern of seven percent of respondents being that overtime work would have bad influence on their relationships with their girl or boy friends.

此外,一成九的受訪者擔心超時工作使他們沒有時間與家人相處;百分之七的人最擔心的問題是長時間工作會影響到與男女朋友的關係。

As to why nearly 80 percent of people could not complete work assignments efficiently within their eight-hour work days, 26 percent of respondents said that their companies were under-staffed, with another 26 percent of those interviewed claiming that they always had many things to do and often did not know how to even get started.

至於為何有高達八成的人無法在上班時間內有效率地完成工作,二成六的人表示公司內人手不足,另外,兩成六的人表示事情太多不知從何下手。

On the same issue, the survey found that 18 percent of respondents could not complete their work assignments efficiently because their colleagues were not cooperative enough and a further 13 percent complained that their bosses were too critical and demanding, meaning they had to work overtime and enjoy fewer holidays than they were legally entitled to.

在同一個議題上,調查顯示一成八的人無法有效完成工作,是因為同事配合度不高;一成三的人抱怨老闆太過吹毛求疵、要求太多,這意味著他們必須超時工作,少放一點假。
