Talk:9 to 5

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

For 9 to 5 to make an eight hour day, there can be no breaks at all. Do americans really work eight hours straight? Are breaks "free"?

This really should be 8 to 5 with a one hour break for lunch. That is system I see alot.

While this has become quite a rarity, many employers (at least in Michigan) paid for a lunch half-hour into the 70s and 80s. One could take an hour for lunch and stay until 5:30 or arrive at 8:30. Therefore one could arrive at nine, leave at five, having had their lunch half-hour and two breaks to which they were entitled under law. Unfortunately, as those of us in the bottom 3/5 have watched our incomes decrease (vs. cost of living increases), we've had to work longer to get the same or less.

Not an article[edit]

Should be moved to Wiki-dictionary, or whatever it's called. Is there a template for this? --Wing Nut 21:00, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

The article is clearly written from the point of view of the Americans only. The "globalize" sign should be included here just as it already is included in the business hours article. (talk) 20:47, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Content Removed[edit]

I have deleted all unsourced material (the whole article), it's a nice personal theory but this is not content for wiki, 3 years should have been enough for you to find sources DarkShroom (talk) 17:54, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
