Hours of work in British industry
AbstractReductions in the hours of work have been a characteristic phenomenon of advancing industrialization and are generally regarded as a significant indicator of increases in social welfare. The movement of hours, however, has not been uniform through time or for workers in different countries, industries, and occupations. In this article, the author traces the course of British experience since the end of the nineteenth century. The main facets of hours legislation are outlined, and changes in both normal and actual hours and in the weekly distribution of shorter hours are examined in some detail.
