A 100-hour work week



Would you be able to manage it? How would you manage it?

You couldn't. If your work week was still the usual 5 days, that would leave you with only 20 hours of free time... 4 hours a day to sleep, eat, get other stuff done, and drive to/from work. Not possible.

If you worked 7 days a week non stop like that, well... it would leave you 9.7 hours each day. Still not enough for everything. It's basically a different form of enslavement labeled as 'okay' because you're being given money that you have NO time to even spend on your needs, let alone meet those needs.


People would snap at some point and start throwing computers or whatever they work with...

I've had a couple of 70 hour weeks. Once had two back to back. Massive paycheck.

I'm remembering every single Charles Dickens novel I ever read.

Matchsticks, sulfur, orphans, and gruel.

And here I was just thinking about "The Jungle."
The part where they all had lice and were working in a meat packing plant...

Jesus H...

I still prefer hourly though. Especially the way my company treats OT for salary employees.

Wait?

I know that I'm about to sound pretty stupid, but aren't all jobs hourly?

I've done it a few times. I felt like driving off a bridge after the second week. Crunch time sucks.
