Cultural journalist Katrina Onstad gives a brief history of the United States’ labor movement and shows how overworked, exhausted Americans – and everybody else, as well – can reclaim their weekends. Historically, Saturdays and Sundays were sacrosanct time off. But in a world without boundaries, working people often lose their weekends to office demands, household chores, kids’ activities, and more. Often, people have no time to rest or to socialize with their friends. Onstad urges you to “take back” your weekends and make time for necessary leisure. The time and effort she poured into her book really shows; here’s hoping she didn’t do it on the weekend. getAbstract recommends her advice to busy professionals who need a break.
