A couple of things I'd like to know:
1) How long are the days they are working?
2) How long have they been crunching for?
I'm against crunch but in a lot of blue collar jobs it is simply unavoidable. I cannot tell you how many 16-hour days or 7-day weeks I've worked. The fact that they are getting a day off already puts them ahead of virtually anyone else.
That's f'ing insane, "40"H/W is ludicrous enough as it is when you take into account all the non-remunerated time it vampirizes that is dedicated to work and you can't dedicate to anything else. You wake up at 7, prepare for work, commute 1 hour, start at 9, work 8 hours, commute 1 hour back then if the day was stressful you need a few hours winding down time ( not gonna count it here, but it still vampirizes the shit out of you nonetheless ). Mind you, a lot of people commute a lot more than that...
So 2 hours morning dedicated to work, 8 hours of actual work, another hour dedicated to work after commuting back. That's 11 hours per day, 5 days a week.
You have 24 hours per day, 8 hours of sleep ( less will have negative health consequences in the long term, vampirizing even more time ), 11 hours work, you're left with 5 hours of downtime. So much for 1 third work, 1 third sleep, 1 third leisure.
So in reality if you work for 20$/hour for 8 hours a day, you're really working at a rate of: ( 8/11 ) * 20 = 14.45$ dedicated work hours you can't dedicate to anything else.
That is objectively not true: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_National_Football_League_career_passer_rating_leaders
Maybe you're just not very good at tolerating Blacks speaking their mind?
