By contrast, Slovenia — which doesn't have its workers on the job for long hours — is a good place for workers in other ways than Estonia, the previous nation on this list. While Estonians aren't overworked on average, Slovenians, who work just 1,687 hours per year, lower than the OECD average, boast a high employment rate among mothers with school-age children. According to the OECD's survey, 74 per cent of mothers with kids between six and 14 have jobs, eight percentage points higher than the organization's average.
