Support for working Families
Imagine what you could do if you had 9 more weeks a year to do what you wanted/needed to do. Take Back Your Time Day is "a nationwide initiative to challenge the epidemic of overwork, over-scheduling and time famine that now threatens our health, our families and relationships, our communities and our environment." The date is nine weeks before the end of the year, representing the 360 hours more each year that workers in the U.S. put in on average than Western Europeans do. Nine weeks! This is part of campus Take Back your Time Day Teach-in. Visit www.timeday.org to hear about the National effort. For more information, read www.prospect.org/print/v12/1/gornick-j.html.
