Not speaking from my own job, but generally, I've always wondered and especially wonder after being exposed to other countries' work philosophies...
Why do Americans work so hard?
Why are our work weeks bleeding into evenings and weekends?
Why is it so rare in this country to be given paid vacation automatically--or even more than a week or two--rather than requiring people to put in the time and prove their worth before they're treated like a human being?
Why do we believe the lie that work gives us our worth? That money equals success?
. . .
I'll sign any petition to change this. Please just don't tell me the answer is socialism.
