Patterns of Workweek Schedules in France


This article discusses research into the patterns of work scheduling in France. Research indicating that wealth varies inversely with leisure time is noted. This article uses workweek grid data from the 1999 French time-use survey to examine the relationship between workers' economic status and their hours of labor. The authors sorted the data to incorporate variations in the workweeks of employees engaged in shift work, staggered scheduling, and other nonstandard work arrangements. The data are analyzed based on whether workers participate in a high value added service position, a part of the Fordist economy, or a low value added service position. The authors believe that this data will match comparable studies of other developed countries.
