No. You just answered your own question Goober boy.
You are only willing to give 40 hrs a week to an
employer. As such you should seek employment in
organizations that are basically in-line with this

The downside of this, is that some jobs will not be
within your reach because there is an expectation that
you will work more than 40 hrs per week.

Exactamundo! And you are compensated for getting the
job done, not just showing up and filling a chair. If
a plumber comes over and says "have it done in an
hour" and it takes him four hours - a reputable and
reasonable plumber would only charge one hour
(assuming there was not some massive change in the
work expected).
