Why the 8 Hour Workday Doesn’t Make Sense

The 8 hour workday is one of those things that seems be something in place largely because it’s just the way we have done things for so long. I know there are exceptions to the idea that the 8 hour workday doesn’t make any sense. There are certain industries and certain jobs that are required to operate in the structure of an 8 hour day in order to function. I recognize and respect that. But as we move from industrial age to an age of information, it’s time to realize that the system is kind of an efficiency clusterfucj3$. Let’s look at the flaws of an 8 hour work day.

Despite all of this, people will still work 9 to 5 and even search for 9 to 5 jobs. The corporate world has done such a good job conditioning us  into to this that people fear the idea of operating outside of the 9 to 5. I’m going to go out on a huge limb and say that at some point the the 8 hour work day is going to be the demise of corporate America and the very system that has kept things running like clockwork for years is going to be what causes it to fall apart. The digital nomads, the netsetters, and all of us who are taking part in this creativity revolution are just the beginning  of a movement where an entire generation is going to give corporate america and the social matrix the finger.
