***SLAVERY (Part II)***
The five-day, 40-hour work week became the standard in the U.S. in 1938 and the start of WWII is generally held to be 1 September 1939. “Men heading off to fight in the war caused a labor shortage. The U.S. government created a campaign using the fictional character of Rosie the Riveter to lure women into working. ‘From 1940-1945, the female labor force grew by 50% and female employment in defense industries grew by 462%’ (AllAboutHistory.org). This also shifted cultural attitudes, making it okay for middle class women to work, where previously it had been taboo.” ~forbes.com
The NYTimes.com reported in 2012 that “Of all the economic dynamics buffeting the American Middle Class, immigration might seem the easiest to explain: as millions of poor immigrants from Latin America poured illegally into the country seeking work, the conventional wisdom goes, they competed with more expensive American workers, displacing them from their jobs and undercutting their wages.”

“Finding a suitable balance between work and daily living is a challenge that all workers face. Families are particularly affected. Some couples would like to have (more) children, but do not see how they could afford to stop working. Other parents are happy with the number of children in their family, but would like to work more. This is a challenge to governments because if parents cannot achieve their desired work/life balance, not only is their welfare lowered but so is development in the country.” ~oecdbetterlifeindex.org
