Years ago I read a newspaper article that showed Chile had the second longest
working hours in (as far as I remembered) the world, after only S Korea.  But
I never found the stats that were the source.

link to this table from the OECD:

http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DatasetCode=LEVEL#

So it's not worldwide, but OECD.  And Chile often appears odd in OECD stats
bceause it's a recent member and one of the poorest / least developed (OECD is
a "rich nations" club).

Still, nice to see the data.
