I voted for 41+, but that all depends on workload. Especially since I telecommute 2 days a week.

I'm another student, and I've put myself in the <10 hrs/wk category. But, well, that just depends on how you define "work."
MTS is a blessing, not a disease.

Normally 40 hrs/week, but for the last 6 weeks we have been working 7-12's, the last 2 weeks of it are at night to meet a FAA deadline to get a new International Runway open. I am about done from sleep depravation and not seeing my wife & son.

Technically, 40 hours /week.

but if I add my commute time = 60 hours /week.

AND if I count the time that I have a pager and am "on-call" = 168 hours /week (that's 24/7 if you don't have a calculator handy).

Darn... Now I'm depressed.

I work about 40 hrs a week between at home work and about 10 hours a week at a group home for delinqent teen boys ( I used to do this full time but it got to be to much )
