SEPA Presents:

Long Work Hours

When Does It Become Overwork?

In today's job market, many of us are being asked to do more with less and putting in extra hours to get the job done. Join us as Dr. Lonnie Golden  explains the difference between overtime and overwork.

Dr. Golden is a Professor of Economics and Labor Studies-Employment Relations at Penn State University, Abington College. He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Illinois-Urbana.

His research pertains to the instability of work hours and employment and effects on work-life and well-being, focusing on working hours determination, work scheduling, Fair Labor Standards Act overtime law, work hour preferences, workplace flexibility, overwork, students’ time use, non-standard jobs, the behavioral economics of labor supply and the relationship of work hours to aggregate employment.

He is co-editor of the books, Working Time: International Trends, Theory and Policy Perspectives (Routledge, 2001) and of Nonstandard Work: The Nature and Challenge of Changing Employment Arrangements (Cornell University Press, 2000). Recent articles include Work-Life Balance, Flexibility and Instability of Work Hours: Salaried vs. Hourly Paid Workers; Work-Sharing and the Potential for Positive Effects on Employment Stability;  Physical Health Risks: Extra Hours vs. Inflexible Schedules;  “Not Formally Introduced? Formal vs. Informal Flexible Daily Work Schedules among US Workers;  “A Brief History of Long Work Time and the Contemporary Sources of Overwork;  “Overemployment Mismatches in the US?; “The Economics of Flexible Work Scheduling: Theoretical Advances and Paradoxes;  “Is Labour More or Less Flexible? Dynamic Behaviour and Asymmetries of Labour Input in US Manufacturing.”

Community Outreach

“A Women’s Place” provides free, private, confidential and comprehensive shelter to victims of domestic abuse.  They offer a service called Peaceworks which is a week-long summer camp program that promotes healthy, happy, respectful relationships while empowering students to recognize their own self-worth.  It is offered for clients at no costs, to the volunteer force at a discounted rate and it is offered to the outside to benefit children in the community at a small cost.

Items they are requesting are safety scissors, pipe cleaners, cotton balls, q-tips (to be used as paint brushes for small children, thin paint brushes and gallon Ziploc bags.
