I work over 11 hours a day. My employer cut my full time hours from 40 a week to 24. 2 days a week. I do graphic production work for a struggling free publication. Most work like this has been shipped overseas to India. The reasons people are working like this are varied. In my case it's the inability of my employer to change. Also the downfall of the unions means that there are very few rights of workers any more. Employers can do what they like. I have seen workers dismissed after 24 years at the company, by a boss who's had a few too many drinks. The abuses I have seen are heartbreaking. The human suffering it causes is so unnecessary.The concept of a "work week" has changed. I know a few people who have 9-5 jobs and they are in unions. What was fought for and gained after the great depression has been erased. Here is an interesting way to look at what the future of our society could look like. http://www.skeptic.ca/Bertrand_Russell_Collection.pdf
Things could change, if we cared more about each other, and the damage done to working people everywhere.

It doesn´t surprise me - I´ve read that people committ suicide in China (se Foxconn for example) and also in France (Telecom) because of horrible working conditions..

Lifeless work - drone mentality will kill anyone's spirit under oppressive conditions. Corporatization of our modern societies is a real & present danger to quality of life. This mentality carries over into our daily lives. If a person is not doing something, they feel anxious - they think they should be doing something. I have a close friend I helped out years ago advising that they did not know how to "not-do", they did not know how to just rest (sleep, yes - rest, no). They have improved, but it is a powerful subtle message hammering people 24/7 in our social media, mobile wireless, world. Good share as always - Thanks.

Hi Patricia - Sorry to hear your work load is so great. Part time is one way employers have shaved benefits over the years. No more cradle-to-grave loyalty, no more lifetime benefits, and we're all expendable. Unions helped that a long time ago but now they're too small to do much good, given the corporate conspiracy to break them. The 11 hour slave day will end when this current model becomes unsustainable. And yes, it will look more like teamwork where people care about others on the team, since we're more productive together than we are separately.

Hi ull - Haven't done much on Foxconn as the entire world's abuzz about it. Recent PR is doing some damage control, but I don't have much hope for real reform until Apple and the others do something about it.

Hi Beth - Yes, too many work at work that does not fulfill their Spirit. Corporations are about profit, and that only - which is why productivity and profits are up, but hiring isn't, nor are benefits. Squeeze 'em, use 'em up, throw 'em away, and find another who will work even harder for less.

I always recommend that if your work is killing you, find a new skill that the world needs that you could like to do. Then you'll always be in demand, set your own work times (within reason, since the better you are the more demand there will be for your services!), and will be free to find fulfillment any way you can by becoming more and more excellent at what you do (which yield ancillary benefits, since an active mind and imagination always open door we never saw before.)

Hi all - I originally posted this on Feb 20. It's now Feb 25. Here are the latest numbers:

At 11,813 votes

Yes, and I feel depressed - 35.9% (4,241 votes)
Yes, but I don't feel depressed - 30.7% (3,621 votes)
No, I put in 8 hours and I like my work-life balance - 15.3% (1,812 votes)
No, but my job still depresses me - 13% (1,537 votes)
I just wish I had a job - 5.1% (602 votes)

So over time and an increase in numbers voting, Group 1 shrank considerably, while Groups 2 and 3 went back to their original levels, more or less tracking the original percentages. Groups 4 and 5 continued to increase over time.

So the larger the sample the fewer people working 11 or more hours a day, but 48.9% still feel depressed and 46% don't feel depressed, about the same as the last time I ran the numbers. That implies these numbers aren't skewed, except they only reflect internet users who chose to vote in this survey. And again, the worst statistic is that those without a job continue to grow over time as a group in the survey.
