Overwork and its costs: The U.S. in international perspective.

By Martin Hart-Landsberg PhD

.

On average, U.S. workers with jobs put in more hours per year  than workers in most OECD countries. In 2012, only Greece, Hungary, Israel, Korea, and Turkey recorded a longer work year per employed person.

A long work year is nothing to celebrate. There is a strong negative correlation between yearly hours worked and hourly productivity.

More importantly, the greater the number of hours worked per year, the greater the likelihood of premature death and poor quality of life.  This reality is highlighted in an article by Angus Chen titled “8 Charts to Show Your Boss to Prove That You Can Do More By Working Less.”

In sum, we need to pay far more attention to the organization and distribution of work, not to mention its remuneration and purpose, than we currently do.

Poet Barbara Hamby

The ante-penultimate poet on our reading list is Barbara Hamby. Married to fellow poet David Kirby, Hamby was born in New Orleans (just down the block from here, you could say) and raised in Hawaii. I thoroughly enjoyed All Night Lingo Tango(2009). It’s fresh and alive and spunky, as well as full of references a movie buff would swoon over. Now I’m no movie buff, but I…

"hi-tech" computers, phones with cords, poofy hair, high-rise leotard uniforms, hula-hoop dancing and wiccan tupperware parties — what’s not to love? long live 80s sci-fi.

Someone recently carved “lesbos” into Gabby, Devon and Sammi’s door, and trashed their car. They want to protect Devon, who is 6 and deals with autism, from being bullied for having gay moms so they want to move. 💔 Lest we forget not everyone lives free of discrimination. (at Official Phoenix Pride)

So sad to hear about Gabby, Devon and Sammi’s negative experience. I hope they will be able to find a friendly, safe home for their family.

One of these should be put up in every city. Just one, to keep some traffic flowing, but yes, we need one, everywhere.
