It's funny how our language changes, to adjust to the changes in our society. For instance, we now refer to the 40 hours a week we get paid for, as our “work” or our “job.”

But there was a time, not too long ago, that we referred to this as our “Livelihood.” And when you put it that way, it takes on a whole new meaning.
