Douglas Coupland: 'The nine to five is barbaric'

Coupland warns that the work routine as we know it is coming to an end: ‘There will be no more weekends.’  He continues:

The future will not have the nine till five. Instead, the whole day will be interspersed with other parts of your life. Scheduling will become freeform.”

The Victorians worked a 12 hour day. Coupland makes the point that in the future, people will look back and laugh at our belief in a 8 hour day.
