I'm all for letting your own ambition drive you. I don't care if somebody wants to work 50 to 60 hours a week or wants to work just enough to get by. Follow your dreams! My personal attitude about life is that nobody owes me anything. If I want something, it's up to me to get it. I don't expect anybody to take up the slack for what I want and what I can afford. Ambition has it's merits ... and demerits. Agreed. From: "wayback71@...

SEems the only way to spread the money as well. But then we all have o be willing to reduce our standard of living. A big impediment to people's willingness to work less than fulltime has been lack of universal health care coverage and decent care for the elderly (ie no pension). And maybe we have too many people on the planet. All good concepts, but how to begin to make a shift?
