nonsense. I think 37 other States don't have such a law. There isn't one in my State, and people don't work 7 days a week... 40 hrs. is still the norm.

Noted. Thanks, Freya. Lawmakers want us to move backwards in time to the "good old days" where workers were literally worked to death. Corporations' "bottom line" can never be high enough for the greedy.

Simply ridiculous! The sad thing is that just like a frog dies in a boiling kettle that starts out cool, we workers are being worked into the ground and suffering the ill effects of it because the excess demands sneak up on us little by little. As much as I would hate to see the economy grind to a complete halt, it may take that to get business owners back into partnership with their workers, instead of trying to dominate them.

Even one day a week is not enough. Workers need two days off, decent sick pay and holidays. This is atrocious, and I hope it doesn't pass.

They just want to make people wage slaves and that makes for an unhealthy, stress-ridden society.
