You don't have to be a NEET to not want to work your life away tbh. I would do so much more if I wasn't tired from work all the time.

I have a tough time believing a new user with a user name like that is a doctor, but doctors actually do important work worthy of that time. Forty hours a week for people doing the cubicle life where they probably spend half the day playing Minesweeper probably isn't a good use of time and could use shorter weeks for more effectiveness.

Personally I wouldn't mind a 40 hour work week if we worked 4 days and had 3 off.

8am-6pm Mon-Thur would be ideal

well i worked 8:30 - 5:00 at my desk job. then for my other job i worked 6:00 - 3 or 4 AM. Sometimes later sometimes earlier. made back some sleep on the weekends when i only had shifts for one job. the weekdays were rough

The labor movement didn't fight for 8 hour days so people could fight for ten. Do you want child labor again, too?

4 tens or even 3 12s is ideal in the 40ish hour work week, but I don't think 40 hours a week is efficient

Labor unions fought to reduce workweeks to 40 hours. The 8-hour day came about as a means of getting to 40 hours.

So no, I dont think that my idea of redistributing the 40 hours so it results in more consecutive hours off work is going against what the labor unions fought for, which was the elimination of working 6 days a week for upwards of 16 hours a day.

Working 10 or 12 is definitely not ideal
