In 2008, the large majority of workers in the Netherlands, nearly 86 percent, were satisfied with their working hours. Employees working full-time were more often satisfied than those with a part-time job.
Just over one in ten people who work for 35 hours a week or more would like to work longer or shorter hours; most of them want to work less.
About two in ten part-time workers were not satisfied with their working hours. Employees with relatively long part-time hours were slightly more satisfied than employees who worked for only a few hours. In both groups, most workers who were not satisfied wanted to work for more hours.
