2 days a week is the average. There are laws here about that. If you work more then 5 days a week you will get 100% overtime for the extra day (s). The absolute max work week is 40hours legally, but the average max is 34hours weeks. Depending on the contract (34 or 40 hour week) you get 100% overtime pr hour over the max week hours. We also get the right to have days off with pay in Christmas, summer, Easter and a few Holly days. We also if documented from a doctor get full pay even if we are sick or hurt. We also get little over 40 weeks off with pay in the event we would have a new baby or something.0
I work four 10 hour days (Tues through Friday) and off 3(Sat, Sun, Mon) for awhile was doing two jobs , so 6- 10 hour days, 1 day off, but let the second job go, so been back to three days off...0
2, most times. Sometimes 1 if I have a shift at the 2nd job.
I'd like a 4 day work week. I'm currently seeing if I can manage that with a flex work schedule.0

7, I'm retired, but chose to work where and when I work.
You can have more days off, just work part time, but you may not be able to pay your bills.
There is always a catch.
My longest stretch was 63 straight days before I had a day off.
After a while you get used to it.0
I only get two days per week off but it's always different days per week. Sometimes I get two back to back days off which is nice. And if we get a holiday pay day it doesn't count as one of our two days off for the week of that holiday because it's paid holiday9
3 days. I went to compressed hours when my son was born, so work 4 x 10 hour days, have weekends and Wednesdays off. Works OK for me. Ideally would love more time off but someone's got to pay the bills0
Days off? 🤣
I work a 24/7 roster and there can be a call at any time.
Even rostered days off do not survive urgent calls from clients, or one of my guards calling in sick.3
Spring, Fall and Winter are 2 days a week off, summer 3 days a week off plus federal holidays, personal days etc. adding up to about 6 weeks a year off.
2 days isn't enough, at least when those 2 days are mostly the same for everyone0
2 is NOT enough! It’s especially not enough if they’re not back to back. If there’s a day or two between days off then you spend both days doing chores, cleaning, food shopping, etc. and you CAN’T rest!0
Before we used to have Saturdays and Sundays as weekends but in high school there is no holiday in Saturday. In my school.0
Usually just the weekend, but occasionally have to work those too.8
Everyone should get 3 days off a week. To relax and live lifd5
I take a half day off here and there. Mostly working 6 days a week0
I have the weekend off and that's so not enough. I wish I could work just max 4 days a week but yeah0
I get the normal 2 and no I would have prefered more.0
2 days, but I think I need more because of the cognitive load I have during the week. In order to refresh myself and stay mentally fit, I need more time away from my computer.0
Well it depends on what days I work like I would take Tuesday off and work Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and sometimes Saturdays.0
I have two days off from work and I take another day to work from home. And that's enough0
4-5 on and 2-3 off Just depends on if there’s mandatory overtime0
Two days off in a week is fine. In the busy season I go 6 days a week & 10-14 hrs a day.0
Seven days off per week in the last five years!
Retired from my non college education required job!0
Usually fuckin 1. 2 days would be nice! The facility I work for actually supplements the 3 others because they don't have their shit together.0
This week I have 2 days off. Next week it can be different4
1 day a week is what I get off. I believe a 4-day work-week with more hours each day is preferrable to a 5 day week with only 2 days off. As humans get older, our minds and bodies need more time to recover. Also, there are so many opportunities that get missed due to a long work week at a job that give very little vacation. Just imagine how many of the world's problems could be solved easier if the average person had both the time and money to travel more of the world and broaden their horizons. There is so many wonders in this world that most people will never see due to slaving away at a job that could replace them in the next minute.
