If you've been putting in a lot of overtime lately, maybe you should take a look at this 'The Overworked American' infographic. Surely, you'll find many Americans who can sympathize with your pain of having to put in more labor to compensate for the effects of the recent recession.

'The Overworked American' infographic comes courtesy of GOOD and presents some fairly demoralizing statistics. For instance, 39% of all Americans now work more than 44 hours per week, 1/3 Americans report feeling chronically overworked, and 59% of American employees now feel more is demanded out of them. Let's hope everyone can bounce back from the recession.

Implications - Infographics have become popular among consumers because they're direct and supercharged ways to communicate messages to audiences. Since North American consumers already have little time to spare due to hectic lifestyles, infographics are among the most effective ways corporations can disseminate information to them.
