OfficeTeam recently released a survey exploring the true nature of the lunch hour in America. The findings show a landscape where lunch breaks are shorter, fewer workers take them, and when they do, over half use it to surf the net or social media.
More than half of workers (56%) said their typical lunch break lasts 30 minutes or less. Among professionals in the 28 U.S. cities surveyed, those in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami take the longest lunches. Employees in Salt Lake City, Des Moines and Cincinnati have the shortest breaks.
