“Right now in Wisconsin, you’re not supposed to work seven days in a row, which is a little ridiculous because all sorts of people want to work seven days a week,” he told The Huffington Post in an interview.
Wisconsin is one of the few states in the nation where businesses “must provide employees with at least one period consisting of 24 consecutive hours of rest in each calendar week.” This doesn’t mean that workers get to take off once every seven days; an employee could work for up to 12 consecutive days “if the days of rest fall on the first and last days of the 2 week period.”
Grothman said he finds this law “a little goofy,” and he argued that rolling it back is a matter of “freedom.”
All sorts of people want to work seven days a week! Why, ask anyone! They’d like to make more money and Wisconsin’s draconian labor laws are making it hard for them to earn as much as they can!
He explained Friday that when he was in college, he wanted to work seven days a week because it meant he would make more money from overtime.
And there’s no way this would be applied to anyone other than eager college kids who’d like to deliver as much pizza as they can! It certainly wouldn’t be used to keep at 56-year-old factory worker on his feet from dawn til dusk, until his hands are crushed and his knees are wrecked and his hearing’s gone. There’s no way that would ever happen. This would just apply to 19-year-old burger flippers!
Every time I think they’ve hit rock bottom they bring out a jackhammer.
