I would prefer the pro make their case first as they have the burden of proof, but to summarize my position, workers do not sacrifice too much time. (I'm assuming we're talking about the USA.) Full time employment is usually considered to be at least 32 hours per week.[1] Workers would be better off working 6 days a week for 6 hours per day for 36 hours per week, but in terms of total time, workers are not currently working too much. If we look at the historical trend, workers from the 1800's worked over 60 hours/week, the early 1900's hit around 50 hours/week, and it wasn't until the mid-1900's that the average work week was around 40 hours/week.[2] Our current 32-40 hours/week is pretty lenient compared to what a worker can physically work.
