Australia - first in the world to institute a 40 hour working week, first to say there was such a thing as a fair and reasonable wage. Conditions like these helped win Australia its reputation as the mythical land of the long weekend. Yet today, for those with work, overtime has increased and penalty rates are disappearing. The nation's population is increasingly divided between the over-worked and the under-employed.
