I don’t. I’m racking up huge amounts of extra time on my new job, and I’m not happy about it. When I look around at my peers and friends, though, what I see is EVERYONE is working this hard.
Of course, per the 2004 labor dept. ruling, almost no one with either a salary or a degree is eligible for overtime, either.
I’m beginning to believe that the 40 hour work week is dead, and we should just stop pretending that it’s real. Do any of you actually work 40 hours a week? Do you recreate on the weekends?
