either the exact words you hear or the main points in your own words. When the passage is read for the third time, check your answers.

In recent years the weekend has begun to decline in importance. While most people work a five-day workweek, (S1) the hardware costs outweigh human costs, the (S2) of the modern economy means that leaving a factory idle for two days or an office (S3) is too great an expense. Thus, many workers (S4) work on weekends. Since this is seen as a greater burden, most employers pay (S5) for weekend work, either by agreement or by law.

The rapid increase in the number of two-income (S6) has also changed the character of the weekend. (S7) the stay-at-home spouse would do the shopping during the week. With both working, most of the shopping must be done on weekends, leaving less time for recreation. (S8) .

The functions of the workweek and weekend vary a great deal in some areas. Stores that rely on office workers will see far less business on a weekend, while those in the suburbs or in residential areas will see far more. (S9) , so Friday and Saturday nights are the busiest for bars, restaurants, clubs, and movie theaters. There is substantially less activity on many websites on weekends.
