Have you ever wondered why the 40 hour work week is considered a standard working week for many? At one point, the US became very close to enacting a 30 hour work week. This video looks at the history of 'work time' in the US, and the struggles workers have faced in attempting to create improved work conditions in one of the mostly capitalistic societies in the world. Some extracts of this video are based on the book titled 'Work Time: Conflict, Control and Change'.
