Learn what we can do to reduce the forty-hour work week - There is a necessity for a shorter workday (six hours instead of eight). This “New Deal” is a demand to push a 30 Hour week to the Federal Government who would subsidize employment if market forces cannot. By self-initiating a mass movement towards achieving this goal, it will relieve overworked Americans who have no affiliation with identity politics to afford a better life at home and in their community.
