There was a time when a job consisted of a five eight hour days, Monday through Friday. But as our society has evolved, it seems that less and less workers face regular schedules each week.
Of course, independent contractors set their own hours. And in today’s economy, that generally means working eighty or more hours in an attempt to get a forty hour paycheck!
Then there are those that work for retailers and restaurants. Some are open twenty-four hours, seven days a week and worker’s schedules are adjusted weekly to meet the requirements of the employers.
Many employees also work on varying shifts for industries such as transportation or public safety. These workers have to readjust their internal body clocks on a regular basis,
We often use the term “banker’s hours” to refer to those with a traditional work model. But the drive-up windows at our local banks are open late now to better serve their customers.
So I wonder…if the banks aren’t keeping “banker’s hours” anymore …who is?
