More and more employees state that they do not comply with the statutory rest periods in Germany.

This emerges from a response from the Ministry of Labor to a request from the left-wing faction in the Bundestag.

18 percent or almost a fifth of those surveyed stated that they were unable to comply with the statutory rest periods due to the high work pressure between their assignments.

The »Rheinische Post« reported about it first.

The Federal Ministry of Labor refers to several data sets in its answer: the microcensus and the working time surveys of the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

Those most affected are those working in the catering trade, in health and social work, in retail and in transport.

According to the Rheinische Post, every tenth employee also works on Sundays and public holidays, every seventh in the evening and almost every twentieth at night.
