Hmmm. That brings you up to the starting point if you were a French worker.
Except for the bit about their 35 hour work week being STRICTLY enforced.
And the other part about unpaid overtime being strictly illegal, and the max. overtime being 8 hours per week
that's a 42 hour work week.

But then again you'd have to work with the French, which is a chore in itself.

    The only problem is if you actually want to work more you can't. A friend of my from the Netherlands did her graduate work in the US. She worked as long as was necessary to get her work done on time. She is now doing her postdoc/assistant professorship at a univeristy near Utrect. Sometimes she can't stand the way she is essentially prevented from working late if she is on a roll. Her coworkers say that she's been corrupted :) Still, she says its worth it... Even with the chronic housing shortage and german tourists.
