Praise

“This definitive study of the working day shows how workers defined the reality of their lives and reshaped our concept of time.”—George P. Rawick

“This groundbreaking book … is crucial reading not only for labor historians but for all those who have ever punched a clock.”—Elizabeth McKillen, International Labor and Working Class History

“Roediger and Foner show us once again that people want to work to live, not live to work.”—James Green

“Shows that shorter hours captured the imagination and aspirations of the worker not only in his or her role as worker but also as citizen, consumer, leisure-seeker and family member.”—Rose Feurer, Labor Studies Journal
