I was being sarcastic; pointing out the overriding goal of the statist - lockstep conformity.

If you read the article I've just posted you will see that though Congress overturned the Black-Connery bill (after the Senate passed it) many employers implemented a 6 hour work day anyway.
And you're reference to "statist - lockstep conformity" resembles reactionary stereotyping. Workers could afirm their own power to negotiate the deals they want or even form their own enterprises.
No, I'm referencing the impulse to push for these kinds of social changes with coercive regulation, rather than just being the change you want to see.
You don't need coercive regulation. A more democratic, participatory economy for workers would do the trick.
Agreed. As long as it's voluntary.
A lot or people already work these 3 on 4 off 4 on three off 12 hour shift schedules. Most seem to like it except there are weird rules/policies when it comes to things like sick days/personal days that make no sense to me. One of my brothers works in such a place. One time he told me he got paid more if he took a day off without using a vacation/personal day than if he took a paid day.
