xxxx The 21st century concept of 24/7 needs to be updated to 30/8 Ė 30 hours a day, 8 days a week. Isnít that half of
what the Beatles sang about a half century ago? This gives people more opportunity to increase their riches so that they
can spend more. The problem here is that many may get sick, require a hospital visit or worse. That in turn would leave
the out-of-work with a place to step in, thus reducing the unemployment dilemma. No, wait. Didnít that process fail
miserably, being employed at the plantations, in the mines and sweatshops? Considering both 24/7 and 30/8, one no.
is missing. My alternative is 30/5/15, which Iíll discuss shortly.

xxxx In my first book on work, Tick Tock, Donít Stop: A Manual for Workaholics, I mentioned the difficulties
of 2 workers, Fred & Sam. The former made $5 an hour while the latter earned a dollar more. The table in that book
pointed out that Fred had $7 each week for spending money while Sam had $44. Above all, the expenses listed were
quite conservative Ė ironically the conservatives in congress today refuse to support a living wage. Apparently they are
fine with slavery. My book was published in 2003, having been written two years before so it was in need of revision.

xxxxxxx xxx My second book on work, This Page Intentionally Left Blank Ė Just Like the Paychecks of the Workers was published in 2007. There I advocate a 30 hour
xxxx xx workweek and $15 an hour minimum wage. My idea of 30/5/15 should be clear now, especially the middle number. This makes sense economically, morally, ethically and health-wise.
xxxx xxxSadly, people are still struggling to obtain $15 an hour, which should have passed eight years ago. Now itís time for $20 an hour and a 30 hour workweek. Anyone stating that
xx xxxx the combination wonít work should sit down and use common sense since their arguments are full of holes, not unlike the loopholes that corrupt lawyers discover for their criminal
xxxxxxx clients so they pay little or no taxes. These contrarians donít even have a solution, which should have been worked on decades ago. Instead of Fred and Sam, consider two others in
xxxxxxx 2015. Specifically, suppose Pat makes $8 an hour and Chris gets $15 an hour. Based on working 40 hours a week for 52 weeks a year and some rather conservative numbers for major
xxxxxxx expenses as well as the assumption that theyíll pay no tax thanks to George W. Bushís tax cuts, what is left for their wallets can be found in thie above table, keeping in mind that the

Nonetheless, Gravity Payments is reportedly still growing. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
