October 24 - The 40 hour work week goes into effect in the USA

On this day, 71 years ago, the 40 hour work week went into effect in the United States. We aren't sure if this is a happy or sad occasion, all we are sure of is that it is indeed, an occasion.

Office hours can be spent a number of ways. One way of course, is to work diligently in the office for all 40 hours. Or there is the Jim Halpert way to spend your time in the office, which consists more of distracting others from doing work, appose to doing any yourself (see video below).

I hope you're reading this On This Day while you're on your 40 hour work week. Because we wrote it during ours.
