Is this really true, maybe in NY but not as a whole, anybody got any government figures on this?

An btw, it is very true that Americans work very hard:
Get to work at 8.30
at 10.00 half hour coffee break
at 12.00 whole hour lunch break
at 14.30 half hour coffe break
at 17:00 time to go home!
While in the US people come to work as early as 5 am and go home as late as 1 am, lunch break: half an hour (not even paid!) and no coffee breaks.. it was a big shock to me.. the first thing I asked my first day at work: when are the coffee breaks? I received a weird look :)
Maybe we can find the most lazy place on the planet, then I am emigrating :)
