ABSTRACT
This article reports that the arguments surrounding the Working Time Directive will rumble on until the end of time. One of the chief problems is whether or not the 48-hour limit should apply to the total hours a person works a week, regardless of how many jobs they have, or if a second job should account for a whole new set of 48 hours. This raises all sorts of issues about people getting enough overtime in and being able to work as long as they want, rather than what Brussels, Belgium decides they should want.
