Open question, open answers.

Let the debate begin.



Who is we?

What do you want to debate?

Yes member's could discuss and give their answers to your question, but debate?

Do you expect the answers to such a question to get posters fired up that they will want debate and argue points?

I don't work or have to work 40 hours a week.



What is work, when asking the question you do?

Because you added the full time hours a person might work in a week I assume its work as in a job that you get paid for.


Doesn't that answer your question from just about every bodies perspective.

To get paid, don't work, don't get paid.

^^ I have no idea why you've decided to post the above. You could have just said:

"No one is forcing me to work 40 hrs per week" Instead of pretending to be ignorant of the fact that a very large majority of the population in the developed world must work 40 hrs a week in order to survive economically.

If ignorance is your thing, cool. But please dont try and derail a relaxed debate that questions the status quo of the working week.

Some of it just seems like "tradition".

For example, there is NOTHING in my job that I couldn't do via my home computer.
Literally, nothing.

However, I'm still forced to drive an hour (each way) to come into an office and do it. Staying home would save me $100 a week in gas, and would likely mean I'd give them more hours, as I'd have no problem logging in later to answer a client on Pacific time, if I was comfortable at home.
