One Reason to Be a Librarian
Some readers, even some admiring readers, think I'm too negative, or too harsh on the profession. So now I want to present one reason to be a librarian: you don't have to work long hours, at least compared to other professions. According to this article on computer professionals, the only professional group that works fewer hours than computer/math professionals is the group of education/ training/ library professionals. Based on statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this lowest group works 41 hours, 18 minutes a week on average. What this tells me is that some of you are putting in a lot more hours per week than I am to bring up the average. Thanks for doing your part to make us all look harder working than the AL!
