Check out CNN.com – Working for the weekend? – Jul 1, 2004. I’ve just got to ask — what’s so bad about letting people have either Saturday or Sunday off, and 24 consecutive hours off in a week? I think we need to all step back and ask whether the 24/7 lifestyle is really a good thing overall. I think it’s not. And living in a small town where most places are closed on Sunday (and a fair number on Saturday too), I can say that it is easily managable and works just fine.
