Sam Shueh I don't think there is a real estate agent out there who works 24/7. Availability doesn't equate to hours worked.

Thanks to the current prez, 32 hours is full time for most. Most companies are shfting below this thanks to the not so affordable health care law.  Workers are losing hours and getting charged more. We dont need less time but better politicians

It isn't how many hours one works that really matter. The # of effective work hours varies from a person to person, from a tired self to a well rested self... Sometimes, I work obsessively much and, as years go by, I am trying to be better at adjusting my schedule to include rest, excersize, family, food, sleep, fun... I do love that as realtor I can work as many hours as I can be effective, no more :-)

We do work for 24/7 and still average a real estate agent makes is close to poverty line.

Personally, I think 24/7 is ridiculous.  How do you expect people to respect you if you don't respect yourself or your family?

Many people work less than 8 hours/day, some less than 6.  As long as we live in what's considered a capitalist system, people are going to work far more than the "standard" work day if it means advancing and improving their quality of life.
