The industrial era paved the way for mass production utilizing large groups of people.
The capitalists employed people, in often horrible conditions, to mass-produce goods. Henry Ford pioneered the 9-5 workday or 40-hour workweek on Sept 25, 1926. It was a model that paralleled the 8-hour school day, to accustom children to enter the workforce.
Up until this point, people were working 10-16 hours per day to man the factory.
As a capitalist he was doing this to help him sell more cars he said: "Leisure is an indispensable ingredient in a growing consumer market because working people need to have enough free time to find uses for consumer products, including automobiles."
This leisure time is what also traps people into an insane amount of debt which keeps them looped in the cycle of having to work a 9-5.
I mean what else will most people do with time off? Time with family and spend money on stuff and things generally.
The money they don't have to buy things they don't need working a job they hate to have more money to...
The 9-5, 40-hour, 5 day work week is an IDEA it's one you, me and all of our parents, grandparents were raised on.
Just like retirement which was created by German politician Otto Von Bismark [Vice Chancellor 1862-1890] which has since been universally adopted by many countries at the age of 65.
BOTH of these ideas do not mean it's is something that you have to actually live by and adopt.
But like all ideas; you simply need a better one to regulate your life better.
I would suggest you take a 7-day calendar with 24 hours per day on the page and craft your own Ideal Work Week.
Then stick it somewhere you can see every day and start where you are to begin formulating your plan to live that week. We can deal with the plan another time.
In a year or two everything you see, there can be the way you live.
