No large country in the world as productive as the United States averages more hours of work a year. In 1980, the highest-earning men actually worked fewer hours per week than middle-class and low-income men, according to a survey by the Minneapolis Fed. By 2005, the richest 10 percent of married men had the average workweek.
In that same time, college-educated men reduced their leisure time more than any other group. This shift defies economic logic—and economic history.
The average work year has shrunk by more than 200 hours. Rich, college-educated people—especially men—work more than they did many decades ago.
They are reared from their teenage years to make their passion their career and, if they don’t have a calling, told not to yield until they find one.But they have used their wealth to buy the strangest of prizes: more work! Perhaps long hours are part of an arms race for status and income among the moneyed elite. “For many of today’s rich there is no such thing as ‘leisure’; in the classic sense—work is their play,” the economist Robert Frank wrote in Workism may have started with rich men, but the ethos is spreading—across gender and age.In a 2018 paper on elite universities, researchers found that for women, the most important benefit of attending a selective college isn’t higher wages, but more hours at the office.Different people have different views to things, like or dislike, agree or disagree.Multiculturalism is a controversial issue in America.“The increasingly automatic nature of many jobs, coupled with the shortening work week [leads] an increasing number of workers to look not to work but to leisure for satisfaction, meaning, expression,” he wrote.These post-work predictions weren’t entirely wrong. By some counts, Americans work much less than they used to.Fair policies allowed all citizens to have the right to preserve their cultural inheritance.Public school has bilingual education programs for new immigrant children.They learn English and the culture from American people or earlier immigrants who are around them.In their public activity, they must accept American cultural traditions, but in their private lives, they inevitably use their own customs, values, religions, traditional festivals and experiences to influence their behaviors. Since the 1960s, The America government has admitted, encouraged and supported cultural diversity.
