But by no means alone. The final thought is that people work 60h weeks to obtain additional material goods. Since the implication this is a vice of white collar professionals (see the rest of the article) then only a journo would think hours of work was directly correlated to take home pay!

Meh. Cafes in Sydney and Melbourne can never achieve the intellectual heights of their European counterparts because there is nothing comparable to look at!
