British workers prefer '8 till 4' over '9 to 5'

Two thirds of British workers would prefer to start and end their working day earlier than the traditional 9am to 5pm, a new survey has found.

YouGov said starting at 8am and finishing at 4pm was the most popular option, chosen by 25% of respondents.

Another 13% said they would prefer to work 8.30am to 4.30pm, while 10% favoured 7am to 3pm.

The polling firm said age and working location were the biggest factors in people's choices.

Nearly one in five people aged 18 to 24 said they wanted to start work after 9am, compared with just 9% of those aged 54 to 65.

More than a quarter of London workers also said they would like to start after 9am, compared with just 12% in the rest of South, and 13% in the North.

Personally, moving my working time an hour earlier isn't something I have any interest in at all. I can understand the attraction of this for commuters who want to beat the rush hour, but that's not an issue for me where I work. Instead, I'm more bothered by the fact that, if I moved an hour earlier, then I'd have to go to bed before my friends in North America get home :( . Also, during winter, it's still daylight when I go to work in the morning, and dark by the time I come home; if I moved an hour earlier, then the journey would be in the dark in both directions.

What do you think?

set work hours identical to high school hours. we are already brainwashed for those hours so obviously thats the best route....but tbh idk, i would rather grave yard shift because way less idiots to deal with.

Fortunately, I'm in a position where the idiots are somebody else's problem :P !

Though, I doubt there would be any use in putting me back on high-school hours. Any 'brainwashing' for those hours that I might have once had was knocked right out of me by university.
