Thought at the End of the Day

President Emeritus Tom Sito reflects:

March 31, 1840- Congress lowered the minimum workday for federal workers from 11.4 hours a day to 10 hours a day. At this time in mines and factories people worked an average 12-16 hour day. The 8-hour day wasn’t achieved until 1913, not until 1941 in Hollywood and it’s still a dream in many animation studios today. ....

It's hard to argue with hard facts ... and/or history. And I won't.

Most of us no longer toil away in mines either.
