The modern workday can look a lot different than it used to. When your company’s been around for 70 years, it gives you a chance to notice just how much things have changed. In the last decade, a lot of folks have swapped more active jobs on their feet for something a little more desk oriented. That couldn’t be truer than now, with more people working remotely than ever before.

So, what did the work look like back in the 50’s? The vast majority of workdays revolved around industrial or agricultural work. Most of the work force were in blue-collar jobs working as mechanics, plumbers, bus drivers, warehouse workers and construction workers. That’s a whole lot of time on your feet, and often doing pretty labor-intensive tasks. The concept of a 5-day work week and 40 hour work day were only introduced 10 years before, in 1940. It is safe to say people back then deserved a rest.

In the past decade, we’ve seen the recent explosion of the internet and the huge technological leaps we’ve made since. Working from home and technology have actually increased the workday and week by blurring those 9-5 lines with always-on availability. Insomnia is up the past few years and blue light in the background from all our different screens is a huge contributing factor to disrupting sleep.

For all that has changed, what’s one thing the work week in the 50’s has in common with ours now in 2021? That you can (and should!) end it on a Milton mattress. Our modern mattresses are built to help you get to sleep in the critical 14 minute window after you turn out your lights. Just like back then, we’re always looking to serve our customers with the sleep they need at the end of their workday. Never settle for less than you deserve with a time-tested, super comfortable, expertly crafted Milton mattress.

According to the internet, the price of a king mattress from a major retailer can range anywhere from under $500 to over $1,500. It leaves you, the consumer, to become an internet sleuth tasked with figuring out what is or isn’t worth paying for. But if you’re anything like us, becoming a part-time detective just to furnish your home isn’t cutting it.
