The era of a 9-to-5 work week appears to be coming to an end.

Higher-level workers are increasingly being asked to put in 50 hours or more a week, effectively working an 8-to-6 work week at the very least, while lower income workers are often forced to work fewer hours but at jobs with irregular schedules, according to a comprehensive report from the Center for American Progress, which reviewed dozens of studies from the previous 30 years to understand the changing work/life struggles of the country's labor force.

Driving these changes, as the center explains it, are companies turning lower-level full-time jobs into part-time employment to cut costs, savings that come at the expense of workers -- and their families -- losing the traditional schedules and financial benefits that come with full-time employment.

I've barely been in the office for almost a month. leave early when I am here.

sayin.
The report is wrong... well, in my circumstance. I work 50hrs a week (salary) and I am nowhere near a high-level paying position. I am exhausted, don't see my family as much as I should, hate even the idea of work, have mood swings but am fine on the weekends. One of my coworkers jokingly says we are unlimited resources, how true is that? I know the route cause of this though as do many here. Whatever, can't wait for the collapse... as long as its full of unicorns, rainbows, cotton clouds and orange sunsets ;-) Life always finds away.
we are all wage slaves, nothing more.

Didn't Jim Morrison try to tell people that back in the 60's
