Although time is a topic that humans have discussed at length for ages, only recently have sociologists examined time and its relationship to society. The goal of this study aims to investigate the relationship between the time schemes of individuals in everyday life to the macrostructures under dominant control. The study uses qualitative in depth interviews and found (1) a common sense of productivity permeates everyday life and interactions (2) respect and timeliness are linked through expectations of productivity (3) people change their expectations about timeliness given certain contexts. This work suggests that more research is needed that takes into account how everyday routines are embedded and reinforced through hegemonic time.
