The Sabbath commandment regulates the workweek, ensuring that all workers (even animals) have regular time off. Why do you think time off is so important to God? What power dynamic is being addressed by the Sabbath policy? Who is being protected? From whom? Though we have regulated workweeks (40 hours, prescribed breaks, overtime pay, etc), how are workers’ rights to time off being eroded today? What policies have contributed to that erosion? What policies would help to protect workers and the need for time off?
