It used to be that the man did an 8 hour day & that was enough
When eight hours was enough
It used to be say 20 years ago when eight hours a day was enough.
That's right eight hours. For the average family say of a wife and two children.
Eight hours was enough to live in frugal comfort.
Today both men and women in the average family household work.
As a result the household gets neglected both parties come home tired
no wonder families break up with such ease.
Now look im not even married soo ill disclose that now. But what happended to the days when a man was the breadwinner and his wage was sufficient to
support as I said in frugal comfort a wife and two kids.
Now I know you Feminist's out there might attack me and say things are better now that women can go out, She can spend more on herself buying designer shoes,fancy cosmetics and glossy magazines . Have lunch with her freinds ans play tennis in Tuesdays. But what is the trade off. A weaker family unit surely means a weaker society. Yes ?
Who is fault is this. Is it industryis it the government, or is it your mother who urged you to pursue a so called dream ? Who have been able to acquire cheaper labor by employing women more on a casual and part time basis?
That another thing there is more part time and casual work now for what once were permanent jobs. This way employers can reduce the worker to a mere commodity to dispose of at whim. Leading to a weaker society more discontent and alienation of the very social fabric which binds together an orderly society.
Look I know that women in the past advocated for their daughter to get out there are do what they wanted in the world. I am all for that so don get me wrong. Its nice that we have more material things as a result and that the economy booms along. If the trade off worth it for the loss of time health happiness, Loss of Family; Connected-ness with family network etc..
