German Manufacturing Body Calls for Longer Hours, Welt Reports

Martin Kannegiesser, president of the Gesamtmetall German manufacturing employers’ association, said that more employees should work a 40-hour week, Welt said, citing an interview with the manager.

At the moment, only 18 percent of industrial workers have a 40-hour week, with a 35-hour week being the norm, Kannegiesser said, according to the German newspaper. Kannegiesser said he rejects calls from the IG Metall union to give trainees an open-ended contract, according to Welt.
