    I want your job if you don't know that.

    I mean no actual work and overtime?

    Must be heaven.

    I'm quite sure you are familiar with the concept of no work as a teacher.

    That's fine if you are ok never being in jobs with real responsibilities. I'm not advocating a 60hr wk average (45-50hrs maybe), but for higher end jobs if something you are responsible for needs doing, you cant just go home and leave it.
    I won't allow my engineers to work more than 40 hours a week, because I can prove empirically they start to produce shit after that, which starts to get expensive to correct.

    Planning projects isn't hard, even time sensitive ones. There is literally no reason to make people work harder and I can guaretee your work quality starts to slip after 35 hours in a week if you do any kind of work that requires mental acuity.

    If you work 60 hours a week, I hope they pay you 150% of what you think you are worth.
    Aka why korean and Japanese companies are often hilariously bad.

    I don't like doing overtime too often. Yes it's 150% of base, and yes there's plenty of work to be done, but personally I'd rather us just have more help on hand than risk running the few of us we do have into the ground. But that can't happen because there's no budget for more help.

    But wait, how is there a budget for overtime? Apparently that's someone else's budget which we can dip into as much as we want. Le sigh.

    Bosses are now paying for breakfast if we're in before 9 and dinner for overtime. About time, and as someone with nothing better to do I'm taking full advantage.

    Couldn't you masturbate or play vidya games? I can't imagine having so little to do that I'd stay it work any longer than necessary.

    At 8:30 in the morning?

    Most evenings I actually do capoeira/some sort of training, the ones where I'm not I'll be staying for dinner :>

    In Keckers world everyone is either a Grinning Capitalist Overlord whose income is merely a means of keeping score, or a poor oppressed underclass eeking out overtime to keep little timmy in crutches.

    Mate most people are in the middle. Not poor or desperate, not rich and smug. For most people (at least in Europe) getting more cash for more overtime is a decision that lets you take that extra overseas holiday or buy a larger flatscreen, not put food on the table.

    Do you want to keep misrepresenting me or would you rather engage on a level that is useful and may actually allow one of us to become more enlightened?

    More and more people in the middle are just about getting by on their income, an income which isn't growing with inflation and there's a potential inflationary bomb around the corner which is going to trample all over a labour market which has been convinced it doesn't need pay rises.

    A lot of people in the middle are becoming desperate. It's absolute astounding you fail to recognise this.

    His argument is most people who work overtime only do so because they are desperate. I understand this argument, but as its an extraordinary one I'm waiting for him to drop evidence.

    I also understand this may be distressing to you because what normally happens is I go and evidence MY claims and then you all quietly move the goalposts.
