Not just 9,000 kilometres separate Mexico City and Paris, but also a good 800 annual working hours.

While people in Mexico City work the longest hours - 2,375 hours per year-  in Paris, people work for just 1558 hours, says a UBS study on Price and Earnings.

This difference is also due to the fact that workers in the French capital have five times as much vacation.

People in Paris and Lyon spend the fewest hours at their workplace. Geneva and Zurich together with Rome have the longest working hours in Western Europe.
