Black and white as always. Of course a doctor can cut his hours to a reasonable level, yet never have to walk out in the middle of a procedure. This is the grey way our reality actually works.<quoted text>
Allen, found this link and I enjoyed the article, but I think the posts to the article speak more to the problem of today's society and work ethics.
Read your article too. Do you ever wonder how long the doctor diagnosing you or a family member as been working, or should he/she just walk out in the middle of you being worked in and say "sorry, you're on your own, no OT for me?" Pharmacists work 10-12 hour shifts, may want to check your prescriptions next time you get one. Think about surgeons, you want one to walk out during your surgery because he couldn't go into OT? I've actually read and this hopefully isn't going to kill anyone, but chefs or cooks work extremely long hours and they all say they love their jobs. Do you think farmers trying to get in the crop or those that work most of the night to save their crop from frost or the cold don't do so because of OT? People ought to be grateful if they're having a hard time making ends meet for overtime. I don't get what's wrong with people that want more but aren't willing to work for it.
Would you rather have a doctor operating on you while very tired due to overwork?
Of course people will aways want more and work less. So? This is human nature. We are not machines.
BTW, cooks are not thrilled by working long hours.One can love their job but not like some things about it at the same time. Just as one can love a person yet not like some of the things about the person.
Not sure why I have to explain this to an adult.
