Lowering Working Hours of Employees
Debate Rounds (3)
Even Economics believes in Real Cost where the workers may get inefficient after long periods of time. Many developed countries have reduced the working hours of employees. It is simply logical that more productivity and efficiency is seen during less working hours than more working hours. I am in favor of reduction of working hours.
(An aside: If anyone, man or women, cannot balance work and their personal obligations, then maybe they should have considered those obligations a little more carefully OR considered a line of work that will compliment their obligations more generously?)
Hardly any company provides fair pay share to both the genders then at least they should lower the working hours of the employees. That's it. If the company is providing a hefty amount quiet much corresponding to the job profile then I don't have a problem. But less increments, more working hours, less holidays, more work load, less no. of employees and more donkey - work is nothing but exploitation. We have studied types of unemployment years ago. This is the golden example of disguised unemployment. Putting less workers in the office and making the remaining workers work like donkeys is utterly inhuman practice.
I'm not even asking about any other services or holidays. I am telling that lowering the working hours is the best option available to satisfy employees already working in a less paid job or stressful job. If they get rest and leisure they'd work far more superior....and submit the 100% proper work before dead line.
I agree that women are underpaid. And I will tell you that I think equality amongst every employee should be standard. But I don't see how you think that lowering working hours of employees would help even that gap.
I agree that understaffed companies who work their current employees far past the national average do deserve lowering working hours. But I feel that by placing a blanket statement of "lowering working hours of employees" across every spectrum of job, that you are also taking the hours from the 46.7 hour employees (such as myself) who are perfectly fine working those hours and who are content with the wages they are earning.
I believe the argument is extremely situational. And when something is situational it needs to be treated as such. Which can be handled with a trip to HR, or conversations with management, etc, etc. But to say that the majority of Americans are being slave driven and need a break I feel is kind of extreme. And I feel that people in those types of situations usually have the option of working their butts off and finding a position elsewhere that is not placing those impossible and debilitating demands on them.
