A person working 40 hours per week who cannot support themselves and/or their family .....is a social injustice OR should work 60 hours per week.

That would depend on their habits - I don't think smoking, alcohol and/or other wasteful expenses should be considered in not being able to support oneself.

Since Obamacare got fracked this week by the CBO report, Democrats think work is obsolete.

If a person is willing to work 60,70 or even 80 hours a week to get ahead, then far more often than not they will.

Neither, they need to find a new job that can!

I work seven days a week at least 10 hours per day as a small business owner. So my answer would be, do what you have to do and hope it gets easier.

Yrs ago when I was laid off of my mid mgmt job, I found 1 that paid 70% of that + 2 part time ones to try to make up lost ground. 2 kids in college at the time & 3 adult mouths to feed, & 3 old cars...sounds like a lot, but it all adds up.

this isn't that simple of an argument. people should be working as much as poss to support themselves. however, that being said some people work more than even 60hrs a week and still can't earn enough through no fault of their own.

exactly this isn't anywhere near as simple as the character limit for a poll allows
