I will work as much as I like, and work when I want to work. I am competing with you for work and cash. I am better, faster, stronger, and have more will and skills to get the job done. I plan on crushing you in the job marketplace. I am an email Ninja and can name maybe 2 days in the past year when my inboxes did not end the day completely empty and taken care of. I respond to text messages and Slack almost before you have a chance to hit Send. Communication is a massive part of succeeding in almost any job and always has been.
Good luck with your Netflix, craft beer, and mortgages (like you can afford a house!). My house is paid for, I don't drink, and, yeah, HOC and TMaM work for me on the treadmill.
So sorry that modern life is proving so tragically complex for you, and you want the government to "level the playing field". Get off my field!
