9 to 5? What about 8 til 4, say British workers

From BBC - November 13, 2017

Two thirds of British workers would prefer to start and end their working day earlier than the traditional 9am to 5pm, a new survey has found.

YouGov said starting at 8am and finishing at 4pm was the most popular option, chosen by 25% of respondents.

Another 13% said they would prefer to work 8.30am to 4.30pm, while 10% favoured 7am to 3pm.

The polling firm said age and working location were the biggest factors in people's choices.

Nearly one in five people aged 18 to 24 said they wanted to start work after 9am, compared with just 9% of those aged 54 to 65.
