Mexico being anywhere on the list is surprising, according to the stereotype anyway. Most of the top ones on the list are either anglophone countries or East-Asian countries. No surprise there.

I wasn't surprised to find India on that list. I have an Indian co-worker who never takes lunch breaks, blows off every company social event to work, and works every evening and weekend. Plus he's always breaking my balls for not working like he does. Thank God he's not my boss.

Notice how they wont even list them all on one page. You'll have to scroll through numerous pages just to get the information in that teaser title. These people want you to jump through hoops to read their articles just so they can get more ad money. I know it's a silly complaint, but still. Not worth the time to read articles like this for that reason.
A good man is above pettiness. He is better than that.

Not silly at all. I have a slow computer and these click-through articles drive me crazy.

pssst! A lot of it depends on the company that you work for, where conditions can vary widely from company to company:

This is a lie, Germany is not even on the list and I know for a fact it should be in the top 3.
Don't buy into Germany being this relaxed place to work, it's not.
