Theocracy is not around the corner. There aren't going to be Sunday laws, we keep our governments, our hired managers, secular.

So you want to make mandatory to take Sunday off ?
How about police, fire fighters, Doctors, nurses, paramedics....
How about the folks who monitors nuclear power plants ?
Or hydro electric dams ?
What if your car breaks down on the way home from church ?
No tow truck till Monday ?
Better enjoy reading, because there's nobody broadcasting your favorite re runs on TV......and no football or any of your favorite sports.

Sunday law is stupid because clearly people still need to work on sunday for emergency services, etc, a mandatory one day off per individual per week is fine, and probably a good idea for mental health.
Yes I'm aware some people love working seven days a week for the extra money, but more others can't handle the strain and it causes actual emotional and mental drain and strain on them and their loved ones. As things stand, the people who can't handle seven days a week are stuck, while those who want the seven days would not be worse for ware without them.
Every body should by right and necessity have one mental health day a week. If someone really feels the need to do work that day, clean their damn house, go help a neighbor with theirs, or go help in your damn community and do charity work, but don't create a situation where everyone is forced to accept seven day weeks to keep any job.
I take one day off a week, I get Thursday off, other than that I work 9 hours 40 minutes to 12 hours and 20 minutes every day but Thursday, and on Thursday almost always have some appointment and necessary chores which means it's rarely a true relax day. For anyone curious the hours are 9 hours and 40 on Mondays and Fridays and 12 hours and 20 all the other days. If I had to work Thursdays too, no one would ever see me. Is bad enough my girlfriend now has MS and I'm still stuck working these hours to make ends meet, especially as she can't work and my car just died permanently forcing me to have to get another car.
Sorry for my weird rant, I just, am very much against the seven day a week work week, I think it is, wrong, immoral, unethical, and bad for mental health and society as a whole.
