Extended work hours beyond 8 hours is great for the paycheck and great for the employer but it ain’t so great for the following reasons:
- More mistakes
- More errors
- More accidents
- Worse sleep
- Greater health risk

AND…double shifts work wonders for your bank account but cause all types of problems for you, your company, and your customers.
