Lunch break getting shorter

WORKING LUNCH: British workers claim they are too busy to take a lunch break

BRITISH workers should consider taking a leaf out of the Spaniards and their two-hour lunch time siesta, as a new report reveals that workers in the UK take just 29 minutes for lunch.

The survey of 2,000 full-time employees by OnePoll said Britons take less than a half hour break before getting back to work as they are just too busy.  A year ago the national lunch break average was 33 minutes.  Many do not even take a proper break and eat at their desk.

The lost time equates to an extra 128 hours of work a year.

Most of those questioned said they had too much work to do, whilst others said they wanted to impress their boss and secure their job during tough economic times.
