    We'd end up with more people who are employed.

    If a company is forcing employees to work 60 hour weeks (or more), for every 2 employees who are working that OT, there's 1 person who isn't working. How is that helping the economy?

    I wasn't quoting you. I guess I should have labeled that quote with who said it. My bad. ;)

    If the pay is as good as you claim I can relocate. It's better than the job I have now as a professional television watcher/unemployment collector. :screwup:

    Have to go back to old dept for a while until they hire a new manager. They fired the guy who took my place due to him falsifying time. What a dumbazz

    It is a statistical fact that after eight hours of working, a worker’s efficiency drops to 75% for the next four hours. After twelve hours, it drops to 50%. After sixteen continuous hours, it isn’t measurable!

    So forcing people to work twelve to sixteen hours a day is inefficient and costs a company money better spent on hiring people to cover those hours in excess of an eight hour day.

    As for working weekends, when I started at IBM, we could NOT work more than three weekends in a row (it was MANDITORY to take the fourth weekend off). The reasoning behind it was that you needed that time away from the company to “recharge your batteries”, spend quality time with your family, and fix things around your house.

    Employees will work OT up to the point where the time away from home makes for a miserable home life then they will mentally quit on you = all that OT will accomplish NOTHING of worth for the company.
