Americans in the workforce know that a 40-hour workweek can be grueling.

I'm all up for jokes but he's the one who helped introduce regulation hour wise in times where 80 hour work weeks were common place.— Dark(est) Gable (@AdiAyeni) September 27, 2017
Are you implying that Ford 'gave' a 8h5d work week out of kindness/business savy?— Joseph Herrera 🌹 (@JosephHHerrera) September 27, 2017

According to Wikipedia:
Ford had made the decision to boost productivity, as workers were expected to put more effort into their work in exchange for more leisure time, and because he believed decent leisure time was good for business, since workers would actually have more time to purchase and consume more goods. However, altruistic concerns also played a role, with Ford explaining "It is high time to rid ourselves of the notion that leisure for workmen is either ‘lost time’ or a class privilege."
Wow. People are so conditioned to believe you have to work to death to be considered a contributing citizen or even successful. Smh— 🐐 (@BlackSerenity_) September 27, 2017
If the people can increase minimum wage we can also demand better work-life balance. Stop just accepting and make a change.— 🐐 (@BlackSerenity_) September 27, 2017
