As a manager, I have seen lots of young people come into the job with expectations that do not match the requirements of the job. Some of these employees believe they are being “overworked” based on their limited personal job histories. These entitled-minded employees may read your column here and find comfort in your words that release them from personal responsibility. When the truth may be, they are not good workers and are feeling the pressure of their own inadequacies. The only relief is to step it up, or choose a new profession (sink or swim.)
I think we cannot simply define the number of hours spent during a week as being overworked. There are always those people who can perform a jobs needs in less hours than a peer doing the same job.
Can you better define how to define being “overworked?”
