Me, I think people should have quotas to meet, and so long as they meet them, they should be free to do as they wish, with whatever time remains left to them. If people can do more, they should be compensated for more.
As for busywork... cleaning... it doesn't add to productivity at all. In fact many companies are now finding that giving people the option of having a flexible schedule, working just 3 or 4 days a week, or shorter days, actually increases productivity.
What?!? That is what determined break times are for. When you are on the clock you are expected to work. Your paycheck and benefits are your compensation for your time, experience/knowledge and effort/work.
Say you have a plumber or electrician at your house and you are paying them $55 an hour. They complete the job in 4 hours. Would you be happy to see them leaning against the wall sending texts to friends and watching videos for 4 hours to pad the bill time to you for a full 8 hour day?
They did it well, they are done, now they are relaxing and are going to rip you off for $220 per what you feel is perfectly acceptable.

I wish I had a nice cushy government/union job. Preferably one that would allow me to work remotely, and work on other personal projects.
