Overworked to Death!

Apparently, it is possible to work oneself to death. Case in point: a man who died after logging more than 106 hours of overtime in a month.

A Toyota Motor Corp employee died of overwork after logging more than 106 hours of overtime in a month, a judge ruled Friday, reversing a ministry's earlier decision not to pay compensation to his widow.

That works out to be just 5 hours OT for every working day. Tell this to your boss next time you feel overworked! Link

when i ran a staffing agency for nurses, i had several nurses who worked about 16 hours a day 7 days a week. and they worked in a nursing home, not easy work at all! so thats about 72 hours of over time in one week alone.

join the entertainment business -- weeks and weeks of all-nighters are the norm for the behind-the-scenes crowd (like f/x crews). no autopsy is cited, so one wonders what the cause of death was...
