five-day work week

I would like to know who I can thank for implementing the five-day work week. Were they stark-raving mad? They really thought five days of working and two days off sounded like a good idea? Now we’re stuck with them. There is no way we can change it now; we’re in too deep.  When are we supposed to do our chores? When are we supposed to pursue our personal projects and goals? Why not four-day work weeks? That seems much more reasonable to me. THANKS A LOT!

    Actually 5 days is less than it used to be. Apparently it was Henry Ford who instituted this at the start of the industrial revolution. Here’s a link: http://hispanicpundit.com/2005/09/21/economic-myths-the-5-day-work-week-and-the-8-hour-day/
