Work less to save jobs?
So last night I watched the end of ER, and thought about how young I was when it first started and I wanted to go to med school.
That show was one of the reasons I decided not to go to med school. It was also one of the things that fed my fear of ever being pregnant (the famous Love's Labor Lost episode).
Really, a landmark of my growing-up time, although I had never really watched it religiously every week since the early days.
And then the news was on, and I watched some of that because the Daily Show wasn't funny.
Surprisingly, the news was funny. Are they seriously talking about cutting our work-week to 35 hours and having month-long vacations in the US? Was this a day-after-April-fool's joke? We're becoming France?
Things have gone kinda crazy in this country. It would certainly help to have (more) national vacation days. This seemed unbelievably radical, something only a young White House could come up with.
Especially if the month-off thing were actually recognized in science!
