Australians urged to Go Home On Time

It's Go Home On Time day, when Australians are urged to decline last minute work meetings and say no to taking work home.

Recent studies show Australians work some of the longest hours in the developed world, not far behind Japan and South Korea.

Dr Richard Denniss of The Australia Institute, a public policy think tank that started the Go Home On Time campaign, says the long hours are having an impact on productivity and mental health of workers.
Business coach Avril Henry also tells Phil Kafcaloudes the perception of how hard Australians work differs internationally.
Presenter: Phil Kafcaloudes
