America's culture of long hours for large pay was spotlighted this week in The New Yorker, which discussed how the long-standing tradition of overworking oneself is changing. "The cult of overwork," written by James Surowieki, details how firms on Wall Street are curbing their employees hours to garner more effective work habits.
“Overwork has become a credential of prosperity,” wrote Surowieki. However, he quotes the global co-head of investment banking at Goldman Sachs, David Soloman as saying, “overworked people become less efficient and less effective.”
