Traditional Work Day Lunch Hour May Be Thing Of The Past

The average employee's midday break has been cut to 29 minutes.

It seems the traditional work day lunch hour is dead.

The average employee's midday break has been cut to 29 minutes, according to a new survey.

According to the Times, even when workers do take a break for lunch, one third of them still respond to messages, with 17 per cent saying they had been criticised by their managers for not responding promptly during lunch. 

35% didn't have enough time to take a full hour out of their busy schedule.
