I'm a facts- and data- driven person, as one could easily surmise from my background. So, when someone throws out comments like "lazy Greeks" I go looking for the numbers.
Surprise, surprise... (click to enlarge chart).
Greeks Are The Hardest Workers In The World
According to the OECD Greeks work 2,119 hours per year - that's 25% more than Slovaks (the commenter referred above said he is from the Slovak Republic) and a whopping 52% more than Germans.
Looks like the populist myth of Greeks lazing and dancing by the seaside, drinking ouzo and munching on souvlaki is solidly busted.
