Do most people on this board have jobs that require 40 hours/week? When I was a kid, my parents never worked more than 40 hours/week. I'll qualify that by saying my dad had 2 jobs for a while until my mom got into her hairdressing career. I still consider the 40 hour work week sacred. I try not to work past 6pm or on weekends and take 100% of my vacation every year. But I see some people who actually proud that they work almost 7 days/week and don't take vacations. I see that as a growing illness in America. Workaholism is very real and nothing to be proud of...it's a sickness that reflects severe underlying issues. Having said all this, I work for a boss that would love me to work until 9pm every night and work at least one day every weekend. Everytime he encourages that, I just change the subject. Whatever...I'd like to hear some opinions on what others do for hours and how they perceive American work ethic today. Note: I am a recovering workaholic myself.
