In some of the talks,I heard 31 hour work week,what gives.
I used to work for National Oilwell Varco, overseas, and I worked with a bunch of guys out of Stavanger. Cool dudes. They would never say how much they made, but they made a lot more than the rest of us (payed more taxes too, I know), and they got more time off. like months off at a time, and the pictures they brought back made everybody jealous. The joke around the jobsite was that NOV stands for "Norwegians On Vacation". What's typical vacation time per year for your average Norwegian?I get paid to work 37.5hrs, but I'm actually at work appx 45-50...
The extra hours I put in, I take out as free time to spend in the National Guard.
Stavanger is sometimes referred to as the oil capital of Norway. I've heard that guys on the oilrigs work 2 week/12 hrs a day, and has 4 weeks off.What's typical vacation time per year for your average Norwegian?
