Work longer but get paid less - please provide concrete data for several time periods in different regions (10 should suffice to establish a pattern) to back up this statement.
I believe you are completely wrong, we have it easier than we've ever had it. You really just want to live a life of leisure, doing no work, but having all of your needs cared for. That's called laziness.
It is a fact of life that people must work in some way to earn what they receive. Only the very rich and the very poor can avoid this. Getting very rich takes long, sustained hard work, sometimes over generations such that you don't get rich, your grandchildren do. Being very poor sucks.
