  • I work 7:30-3:30 M-F, so that is 40 hours. I occasionally have to work over or have to go for training. My husband works from 7pm-7am from Monday-Sunday (84 hours), but then has a week off.

  • My DH works 40 hours a week and home at 5:30 every evening. I work 39 hours a week 7p to 7a. I work 3 days a week and home when the kids get home from school.

  • I work in a school as an EA, so I work 5.5 hours a day M - F. I start at 8:45 and get off at 3:00, with a 45 minute lunch break. My hubby works 8 - 4 M - F with an hour lunch break. That's 27.5 hours a week for me and 37.5 for hubby, but he's not an hourly worker. He's the executive director of his company and gets a salary.
