About 34% of Peruvians work more than 48 hours a week and only 9% dedicate less than 40 hours to their jobs, according to a survey performed by Trabajando.com.

In the survey, which collected responses between June 26 and July 8 from 2,100 Peruvians, including both men (52%) and women (48%), also looked at the number of days that people devote to their jobs.

Thus, almost half of the respondents (49%) said they work six days a week, followed closely by 41% of respondents who said they work five days a week.

The job portal study also revealed that 89% of participants work in the formal sector and 11% in the informal sector.
