Fighting the 9-to-5 workday
The 40-hour workweek is facing a reckoning after a viral TikTok questioned how people have time for a personal life while working a full-time job. Brielle, the grad behind the video, told Insider it’s not about being entitled. Instead, she wants an open discussion about “reforming the work schedule.” Much of the internet agrees, with people questioning why we follow something established over 80 years ago. It’s all part of a wider upending of the workplace by Gen Z that’s long overdue.
