Newsflash – The 40-hour Workweek is Dead
Imagine a time about 20 years in the future. You’re talking to your grandkids about work in the “olden days” and they’ll ask, “Grandpa, what is a 40-hour work week?” And you’ll look up from your phone where you’re responding to six emails from three bosses and tell them it’s a relic of days long since past.
This is hardly shocking news. The 9-to-5 workday and the 40-hour workweek are dead.
A new survey found 88% of people now work MORE than 40 hours a week.
71% do work from home after hours at least once a week.
63% don’t take a full lunch break every day.
And 58% have a commute that’s at least 30 minutes.
