Episode 4 - The 40-Hour Workweek

Zoomer Boomer with Jim and Molly

06-09-2020 • 45 mins

Apologies for the late upload this week. Labor Day weekend preparations got in the way of an on-time edit.

This week Molly and Jim discuss the pros and cons of the traditional 40-hour workweek which has been around since the coal-powered factories of the Industrial Age, as well as the meaning of "productivity" in today's very different world.

We also dig into the way that the the Covid-19 pandemic has radically changed the concepts of commuting, and "punching in" at 9 a.m.
