Unlike the past, today’s people are seen sparing much less time for leisure activities and are seen engaged more time at work. Though it appears to be disadvantageous for many, I feel the opposite in the present living situation.
To begin, human needs and desires are soaring and so do their necessity of money at present. Most people face this challenging situation by transforming themselves as workaholics, sacrificing the available modes of enjoyment. Hence, they accept the norm: ‘more work means more money’.
The next major positive area is the provision of career expansion. For example, most young employees perceive the fact that hard work is the cornerstone for them to have an established career, and as they reap exceptional benefits, they would try to go another mile ahead. Finally, less leisure means saving more money. To be precise, many understand the fact that they are most likely to lose money as they get more leisure time, and instead if they work long hours, it helps them to get engaged in a productive way.
Nevertheless, when the leisure time is set to the minimum, many might feel their life monotonous and less colourful. This would adversely affect the productivity of a person, which could ruin his career prospects. However, I feel many employees can now tackle such problems effectively.
In conclusion, though some leisure is essential for a working person, I feel long working hours can be more beneficial for the modern working population.
