Work As Hard As You Can For Europe

The European Union has adopted a measure which can lead to people having their working week extended to 65 hours, that's 13 hours a day. So much for progress. They say that the implementation of the measure depends on employee agreement. You can easily imagine how that agreement may be achieved in many circumstances: "Would you like to work 65 hours a week or would you like to be unemployed?" Here in the Spanish blogosphere there is already a campaign started against this measure, and they have helpfully prepared banners in different languages for bloggers to use. Pass it on.
