‘May Day’ for knowledge workers

The concept of a Labour Day originated in an era where there were only two main classes i.e. workers and business owners. Today, we have a significant number of ‘knowledge workers’ – like you and me reading this paper. None of us are paid for any physical work we do, only for the intellect that we are supposed to bring to table. Our work may not be physically tiring and strenuous, but the mental challenges that the ‘knowledge worker’ experiences is equally stressful.

Isn’t it time we had a ‘Knowledge Worker Day’ – a day on which we can all truly ‘switch off’ from thinking about work?

Call it a Mental Holiday!
