May Day, the 8 hour work day at Council Blogs

May Day symbolizes the American drive to establish a 8 hour work day. At Council Blogs we have a special take on the 8 hour work day and our marketing plan. It is ironic that the origin of the 8 hour work day is the U.S. where we have such a work-a-holic culture.

Enquirer.com put it elegantly: American workers take an average of 13 days off a year. The Italians meanwhile take 42 days, the French, 37 days. Even the highly productive Japanese take 25 days a year.

The rule in our blogging club is to set aside one hour a week to work on marketing. WIth all that work-aholism you would think it would be easy to find an hour. That’s why we have an organized get together. Mike calls it “an appointment with the maketing department, myself.” If you would like to join the bloggers you can email the Chief here.
