The government has structured our world so we have to work at least 5 days a week in order to live a ‘comfortable’ life.
My question is: what is so comfortable about spending more time with you colleagues than your friends and family? Why is is more comfortable to sit behind a computer screen than take your dog for a walk by the lake?
Oh wait….ITS NOT.
My 9 year old brother came up to me yesterday and asked why weeks and weekends are so uneven – I genuinely couldn’t give him a good reason. The conversation ended with ME asking why couldn’t the government just raise wages so everyone was able to work 3-4 day weeks.
He’s at the age where WHY is the biggest question of life, so maybe someone could help me understand exactly WHY we have been taught 5 day work weeks are beneficial, since childhood.
Till next time,
