Re: Re: US threat to Spain as a retirement destination


Do any of you know anything about living and working in Spain or have you just been googling stats! What makes you think spaniards work less hours than an American? Not only do many have to commute twice a day because of 2 hours off for siesta there are complaints of having to work unpaid overtime. Spain not as stressful..not for a foreigner with an outside income who doesn’t need to work:roll:

The workers in the garage that serviced my car started work at 8am finished at 2pm started again at 4pm finished at 7pm. Saturdays 8am until 1pm. People who work in the service industry have even longer hours. That is if they have a job of course with unemployment at 21% (30%+ in andalucía)
