Mexicans work more than any other people worldwide. "Mexico's undeserved stereotype for indolence is finally being chipped away," says the Monitor's bureau chief in Mexico City, Sara Miller Llana. "Don’t buy it? Then I can offer an arsenal of anecdotal evidence, starting with myself. Years ago when I was living in Boston, a phone call after 11 p.m. was likely a friend just back from a first date. Now, as a reporter based in Mexico City, when my phone rings at that hour I assume it is Los Pinos, the White House of Mexico."
Every day, Mexicans work nearly 3 hours longer every day than Belgians and more than 1-1/2 hours longer a day than Americans, according to the OECD study. Perhaps just as striking, Mexican women perform 4 hours and 21 minutes more unpaid work than Mexican men every day. That's the biggest gap in unpaid work time between women and men in the OECD, where the average gap is 2 hours and 28 minutes.
