4/17/09: Starving for Time

Lots of Clocks! Photo by <a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">G Kaufman</a> on

Salt Lake City, UT – You probably imagine your life better than that of a medieval peasant, but consider this: Americans work more on average than a laborer in the Middle Ages. Even to judge by today's standards, we still work 350 more hours a year than our contemporaries in Europe. Americans are starving for time, and this famine poses a real threat to our health, our relationships and our communities. John de Graaf is the coordinator for the national Take Back Your Time initiative and he joined us to talk about what we can do to reclaim our lives. (Rebroadcast)
