Could you use an extra £8,720?!

UK workers gave their bosses nearly £32bn worth of unpaid overtime last year – an average of £6,050 each if these hours had been paid – according to new analysis published today (Friday) by the TUC for Work Your Proper Hours Day.

The report estimates that on average, London workers earn £20.45 per hour and work 8.2 hours of overtime per week – loosing out on £8,720 per year!

That’s a lot of unpaid overtime across the board for all industries here in the UK. We’re guessing that if this report only looked at the Visual Effects Industry, the value of unpaid overtime to each vfx worker would be even higher!

How much are you loosing out on? You do the math!
