Clergy members work way too much

There are a lot of good reasons why I'm have no interest in going into the clergy. I've known for awhile that the quality of their work is really difficult--they are part theologian, part CEO, part psychologist, part everything else.

It turns out that they also spend way too much time working!

Here's some data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"About 30 percent of men and 15 percent of women usually worked more than 44 hours per week. Among men, those working as physicians or as clergy had the longest workweeks at an average of 52 hours."

Here are some of the data:

So, the next time that you see a clergy member, thank them for all their hard work, then lie on a couch for them.

As a sociology teacher/graduate student who is partnered with a clergy member, I find it frightening yet completely unsurprising that we both make this list!
