I used to love to work four ten-hour days. Every weekend was three days long. AND there was the opportunity to work the fifth day and make some overtime.

My mother worked three twelve-hour days and got paid for 40 hours in Californica back in the 80s and she liked it too.

Sniveling little spoiled SOBs.

I’ve made a lot of money off of the union workers over the years. If you pay otherwise unintelligent people a bunch of money, they spend it.

That’s the Democrat version of trickle -down economics. Take it from the rich, run it through Washington, and give whats left to the unions to spend.

a few years ago, they simply cut out the overtime that most had come to rely on. Within just 2 weeks of the smaller paychecks, there were 500 bankruptcy filings in town.

Some of them are good, down-to-earth folks. but some of them are absolutely the most self-entitled, spoiled whiners you ever want to encounter. You can tell the Democrats from Republicans that way.

They draw their union provided lawyer like a six-shooter whenever they feel slighted. And being liberals, thats 24/7/365.

10-4 is great. It’s hard during the work week, but the extra day off makes up for it.

I work nearly 12-5 on straight salary, so anyone complaining about overtime and long hours can suck it. My job is outside in the middle of winter and the height of summer. Factory work can suck, but the pay is pretty good and you don’t need a college degree.
