• US Congress averaging 70-hour work week


    WASHINGTON D.C.: Who are some of the hardest working men and women in Washington, D.C.? Congress, apparently. Members of the US Congress work an average of 70 hours per week when in session and nearly 60 hours per week for district work periods, with approximately 13 meetings a day, according to a report by the Business-Industry Political Action Committee and the Congressional Management Foundation. Congress gets knocked for its work practices constantly — and the 113th is on track to be one of the least productive congresses — but members are busy with active schedules.
