Many people work longer hours than 30 years ago. Since 1981 two-adult households have added six hours – nearly a whole working day – to their combined weekly workload.
No they haven\’t. This is simply a lie.
Leisure hours have risen: so working hours must have fallen.
And to think, our tax money pays for these cretins to type away.
- Today, nearly 2.5 million people can’t find jobs. Cutting labour to save money without changing working hours means some are burdened with overwork while others lose their livelihoods.
- As a result of this growing inequality in working time, the unpaid components of life are suffering. Family life, neighbourhood networks, time with children and quality of life for older people are all diminished, with painful results for society that sometimes get lumped together and lamented as ‘Broken Britain’.
I\’m sorry? More leisure time leads to a diminution of social life?
Doesn\’t this rather obviate their own crazed logic?
