Overworked, underpaid and ready to fight

It's not often that Blogma feels strongly enough to unhand the remote and publicly advocate something (or anything). But we did just that last week by demanding the official institution of a four-day workweek.

Well, comrades, we are not alone. On Oct. 24, we can pledge our collective allegiance to "Take Back Your Time Day," which supporters describe as "a major U.S./Canadian initiative to challenge the epidemic of overwork, over-scheduling and time famine that now threatens our health, our families and relationships, our communities and our environment."

The time to act is now!
