While the length of Congress' session in 2012 included more days than in 2003, the average hours in-session each day dramatically decreased from 8 to less than 5. The bipartisan congressional coalition, No Labels, has called for implementing five-day workweeks for Congress members, who totaled 930 hours-in-session last year. American workers averaged 1790.
