If it's manageable for some people, that's great. I'm extremely wary of anyone suggesting that it should be the norm, though, because:

  1. some people don't have the time
  2. some people don't have the health
  3. it fosters an environment where people will expect you to behave that way and if you don't you'll be seen as somehow lesser than your peers - regardless of how you perform in your job.

As a soundbite, expecting a 60-hour week isn't a work ethic, it's commitment creep.

Expecting a 60 hour week and paying for 40? Those 20 hours are slavery.
