    Abstract

    The intention of this paper is to provide an insight into historical and contemporary conflict over the length of the working day by utilizing a particular interpretation of Marx's theory of surplus-value. Epistemological priority is given to labour time in examining conflict over distribution and working conditions. Historical and recent evidence is brought to bear to demonstrate the relevance of this conflict in the context of recent debate over working hours in the EU in general and the UK in particular.
