The highest proportions of young working on weekends among EU member states was reported in Greece (47 percent), Italy (40 percent), Ireland (38 percent), Cyprus and the Netherlands (both 36 percent), Spain (35 percent) and the United Kingdom (34 percent).

“The lowest proportion of young employed who work on weekends is among persons with tertiary education (20%). However, those with tertiary education are also most likely to work long hours, defined as 49 hours or more per week (8%),” Eurostat said.
