us who say we work 60 hours a week or more. so, if you're a full time worker but actually work less than 40 hours a week, you are in the 8% minority. now here's why some of those experts believe that these numbers could be the way they are. some people might simply be more resourceful. but then there are others, who, well it, might actually be part of their pay stricture. employees paid by the hour sometimes are restricted in the amount that they can actually spend on the job, because of limits on over time, and that is typically not issue for the salary employee, so more likely to log more hours at the offers, survey is also suggesting that people who get a salary, while they may get to enjoy little more income, well, they also have to pay the price by giving up more of their personal time. so it is one of those give a little, take a little situations, guys? >> all right, well, let's share the love watch about people in other countries, are they working more than they're expected to, as well. >> yes, the french actually cut our eye, looking over the survey, too, we did see that there is some potential talk that they might lift that very
strict ban that they're in france on the 35 hour work week, which means, some people might work a little less, but they could also potentially work a lot more, which means, they would join us in being one of the busiest of course hard-working. >> you got to love france with their 35 hour limit. like no more than 35, that's just nuts. >> but always remember, if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. >> very true. >> come on, now. >> that's right. thanks so much. have a good labor day. all right, a loft folks have the day off. hoping maybe grill out, get to the beach. what do you think, kaley? >> i think you will be able to get your plans in. here is the thing, it will be hot. it will be steamy. we are eventually dodging some additional showers and storms, so, while we may be starting off here with nothing more than couple of little scattered showers, left over from the heavy rain that actually rolled through, one large pocket through the overnight, just keep in mind later today much like what we saw yesterday afternoon, evening, especially, these new rounds of showers and storms may crop up. right now, we don't expect
