I agree but there will come a time if limits are not placed where every employer will feel like they can put you to work for 100+ hours without concern and without empathy for you family, and what will you do then?
Some of us actually want to work without having to worry about whether we will ever spend time with our families are not. I’m sure you work 100+ hours with great concern for your family, however, I enjoy my 40-45 hours of work and while I don’t provide for my family like I would want to, I do enjoy the many hours I get to spend with them.
I know that many employers don’t care about that, and if we were all salary they wouldn’t give a damn no matter how much we make how much time we spend with them.
My boss cares about my hours but when you get further away from human contact the less you care about people. My bosses boss could care less how many hours we work or how late we work them because they aren’t in touch. Should government decided that? I would like to say no, however, my bosses scare me more, call me liberal if you want, but quite frankly if you look around, even our good Christians don’t really care about fellow man anymore.
Most places I worked the attitude was “You’re salary and therefor cheap”.
I have done jobs typically done by hourly people, in order for the company to save money on overtime. I also left those companies, but they continue the same practice.
It cuts both ways.
