It got conveniently forgotten in the 21st Century by those who run companies both in the United Kingdom and United States as it got in the way of the owners of the companies getting rich off the people working for them.
This regardless of the fact those people who are paid real wages and have good work and life balances are more productive workers who will make more money in the end for the companies in question.
But as always the owners of the companies and their minions are blinded by greed, power and a lack of understanding of humanity itself. Over the last few decades they have become even more remote from the society around them as they live in the Ivory Towers of their own making more obsessed with money and power that actually showing basic humanity or even sense.
I suspect this will go so far as eventually the people will smash down these peoples Ivory Towers and take back their lives and freedoms stolen from them by these people. All this wealth and power these people amassed will count for nothing or even save them as it was never real in the first place.
One thing we can take comfort from this is that all these people have the wealth and power and so called fabulous life styles but in truth the large majority of them have no real lives in the end as the biggest irony they had to put work before life to get where they are!
