    long hours

    Dear experts, explain please 'long hours' in 'Our records show that farmers work long hours'
    Everyone know that an hour = 60 minutes.
    Maybe it means '...work more than normal people'?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: long hours

    Welcome, gritz06.

    If the working hours are, say, 8 hours a day, then short hours would be less than that, maybe even half a day or even less hours than that. Long hours would be over a day's work, over 8 hours, say, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. or even over that.

    All the best.
