Labour Day - hooray for the 40 hour working week

The Sunday Star Times yesterday had what I thought to be a good article on the demise of the 40 hour working week in NZ.

Of course, I'm a full-time domestic goddess who gets paid in the priceless currency of gratitude and affection, while my husband works a government-department 40 hour week and earns enough for our family's needs and a few luxuries. (depending, of course, on how you define needs and luxuries - there are no casual 'weekends away' in our lives). But, we do nonetheless feel the pressure to be working harder and longer to justify our existence.
