Why do we work 5 days a week and only get 1 to 2days off?

It really doesn't seem fair...really thinking about it we make a low wage work hard Monday-Friday and then they only allow us 1 to 2 days to relax and expect us to be a super hero Monday morning something seems wrong! LOL

You should be thankful for the 2 days! It wasn't that long ago that workers had no rights and were forced to work 7 days a week for as many hours as your employer required. There was child labor, no overtime, no benefits whatsoever - pretty much what we consider 3rd world working conditions. Labor Unions fought for rights and benefits and got you a 40 hour work week (down from 80+!!!). If you think we need to have a shorter work week, I encourage you to enter politics and fight for it, or .... join a Union. :P

Thank you for the comment I'm very much against unions I really liked what they did I think they worked out well in the time they were created but now things are different there might be a few problems here in there but now unions have become the problem they strike over anything they need to go about things a different way nothing gets done why you hold a sign and cry! LOL

As a Union member, I gotta tell you - the last thing we want to do is strike - we don't make money doing that!!! Our Union hasn't had a strike since 1982. And that strike benefited the local non-union workers just as much as the union workers!!!! We have to be diligent however and continually fight for fair rights, pay and benefits. Currently we are fighting the government for allowing in foreign workers to work for minimum wage, when our country has so many of our own citizens unemployed.

It took God 6 days to create the world and rested on 1 day. You agreed with your employer to work whatever was required of you. I hope I've helped you understand this
