"Americans are working far more than they did only two decades ago. The result is a severe imbalance that has devalued family and civic life. This paper is devoted to the idea that limiting overtime work in the graphic arts will contribute to healthier, more creative, and more productive employees. Designers are feeling the escalating pressure to work longer hours; the common perception is that this is unavoidable if you want to move up or even keep your job. The average employee feels helpless in a nation with little government protection and nearly no union presence. This thesis aims to change the perception of this issue within our profession and bring forward a dialogue about the need for a healthy work/life balance in our society."
