Working Ourselves to Death

A few weeks ago, The New York Times ran an article about entry-level positions that have no limits.

This is one of the reasons I left New York. Publishing is a notoriously low-paying and long-houred position, and my work life was getting crazy. As much as I tried to set a balance, my workday was edging towards 10 and 12 hours. Many coworkers worked from 8 to 8 AND came in at least once over the weekend (the only time I ever came in on the weekend was to set up my new office when I switched jobs).

Why are we so work crazy? Is it because we are money crazy? Prestige crazy?

I really don't have an answer to this. What do you think?
