Down with socialism! First, let's smash unions. Then let's abolish the 40 hour workweek. Then let's remove other socialist institutions like OSHA. We'll soon know the glorious economic boom that Bangladesh is experiencing today!

The funny thing is you think a 40 hour work week is decided by the government and not by salaried employees negotiating the contractual terms and compensation for their work when they interview an employeer.

There are laws mandating extra compensation for hours worked beyond 40. There's a small window that defines who is exempt from overtime, and many employers will wrongly claim employees are among those exempt positions. So yes, the government is a big part of that 40 hour workweek definition. It just so happens employees have shit representation and don't know when they're victims of wage theft.
