How employed Americans spend their time

This is always a fascinating report (at least if you like odd data)--how the American worker spends her/his time.
"On the days they worked, employed men worked 56 minutes more than employed women. This difference partly reflects women's greater likelihood of working part time. However, even among full-time workers (those usually working 35 hours or more per week), men worked longer than women--8.4 hours, compared with 7.8 hours."
Hmm. Could account for some of that wage gap--almost 50 hours more a year for employed men.

 Digging deeper. Americans spend .16 hours a day on religious or spiritual activities and 2.73 hours a day watching TV. This could explain why the culture is taking over.
