What about people who work 60+ hours?

If everyone were working 60 hours and barely making ends meet, would you argue the same thing?

What about 70 or 80 hours a week?

I look at the 40 hour work week as simply how things ended up, and is probably a common threshold of misery (for people who don't like their jobs) and life (recuperation, etc).

Also, I agree with your statements about profits being distributed poorly. I blame the patent system for that, which needs to change.

The way I like to put it is: Who gets to own automation?
