It depends on the time of year since I help my parents out on their farm...

This past summer I worked an average of 55-60 hours every week. In the winter it is closer to 10-20, yet I am still helping my parents with odd and ends on my free time. :-)

Of course, there's WORK and then there's PAID WORK.
Hence the "hard to quantify" option. I was thinking of making your distinction in the poll, but then there'd be 2× as many poll options…

It seems to be a superstition of capitalism (i.e., of "state-sponsored usury") that work can always be quantified. Oftentimes volunteer work is more productive than hourly paid work.

I am a early baby boomer born in 1946. Now, retired and living off social
security.


I too am a boomer, 1947, but my SS is not enough to live on so, with only myself to rely on, I work 30 to 35 hours per week and must do so until I die or a miracle happens.
How I truly long to be retired and let someone else have my barely over minimum wage, standing on my feet 8 hours a day, job.
But, as another way I try to look at it, at least I have a job and at my age that is a minor miracle in itself!
