I think the one on the bottom has sharper claws, and can inflict longer-lasting damage.

Apple trumpets a 60-hour workweek like it's some kind of a good thing.

That being the maximum probably is. I could imagine many of the chinese companies trying to push 80 hour workweeks otherwise.

I understand that, but I don't think that 60-hour workweeks is something to be proud of.

It's kind of like if you have fresh gruel and you have week-old gruel, and you're trumpeting the fact that you're feeding the prisoner the fresh gruel.

I've not visited a company where the management did not work roughly 60 hours a week. Some do 80. I personally draw the line at around 45..

If you're paying someone millions of dollars a year, you're justified in requiring 60-hour workweeks.

Paying someone sweatshop wages and demanding that they work 60 hours is not the same thing.

Note, for the price, you could hire a hooker to blow smoke in your face for less than the price of this hookah...

The management I know are middle to low level and nowhere near the million dollar a year category. I also hope those being paid those sorts of wages work at least 60 hour weeks.


Hah, awesome radarman.

There's a certain point above which it's justifiable to require 60-hour workweeks.

I really doubt that workplaces known for their company suicides meet that.

It's not bad. In the marine world, the legal international limit is 72 hours in any 7 day period. A lot of people in the third world work way more than 60 hours a week. It's only within the last 100 years that the 8 hour day has become standard in western nations.

When I'm at sea I'm working 84 hours+ a week.

Yeah, working 60+ hours a week is... well...

As my housemate is fond of saying, "Welcome to Corporate."

Of course, there's also a huge difference between operating a cubicle 55-60 hours a week vs. working on a ship at sea. Or breathing lead fumes in a 110dB iPhone factory, for that matter.

There's more to a job that the number of hours you work.

Amazing how the color makes it feel so much closer. Still plenty of roadsides that look basically the same.

Yep. It sucks. I'm just glad that things are improving in places like Foxconn. It's still terrible, but I'll take gradual improvement over principled but impractical all or nothingness any day of the week,
