This "study" is completely bogus. They are counting hours at the office. The previous generation could only do their work at the office because the technology dictated so. Today's workers may not be in the office as much but do far more work from home because our laptops, tablets, and cell phones mean we are never away from work, and the expectation is that we are always working.

My dad may have spent 10 hours a day at the office while I spend 9, but my dad didn't work 2 hours a night from home like I do. So according to this "study" my dad worked more than I did, but we all know who's really putting in more hours.
