Commuting to work should be paid as work, by the way.
@dashie @uint8_t I even have the feeling this thread might be related to your other recent one, you know, about this silly POS in Excel thingy. I am not sure whether I find this or working 40 hours per week more silly. It feels like both kind of come out of the same paradigm 😆 . But at least the POS thingy made me laugh. Thinking about 40 hours work weeks and what it does to the planet and its inhabitants doesn't.
I mean silly on a societal level, not of course individually. I do not think it is silly for people to work 40h a week if they do not have another choice (e.g. for financial or other reasons). I just think it is silly to uphold the idea of it being necessary to work 40h a week.
(Just in case someone stumbles across it and wants to interpret it differently)
@uint8_t I sometimes talk about how annoying it is to commute to work everyday for 20-40min. And people react with "awww how cute, I commute 1-2 hour everyday, grow up!"
like wtf is wrong with these people. I stop looking for work after 30km distance. I need my time for myself...
