[INFOGRAPHIC] Do We have to Work 8 Hours a Day?

It is standard these days that people who work for a salary work for eight hours a day excluding the breaks. Project costing and resourcing is also based on this theory.

Some countries like India make people work for nine hours – with an eye on reducing their operation costs and to pass on the reduction to their customers.

Will organizations wake up and give notice?
