Back in my day, people worked for a living

Randy Shore advocates for a shorter work week so we can get our hands dirty in the garden. Sounds like a lovely idea, right? Unfortunately, he prefaced those thoughts with this:

I grew up in a world where every adult worked five days a week and I know that isn’t the case so much today. People work at home, work on contract or, if they are young enough, work only when they feel like it. [emphasis added]

Ah yes, I’m sure the 16.6 % unemployment rate for young people would be so much lower if we worked even when we didn’t “feel like it.”
