Moonlighting the norm for Slovaks

Over 100,000 Slovaks officially have more than one job, according to the Information and Statistics Office. Tens of thousands more are working illegally in second jobs. The majority of these jobs are in shops and schools.

According to law, Slovaks cannot work more than 58 hours a week, with most employers having a standard workweek of 40 hours.
