Love Your Job = Work All the Time

I'm not sure what the Star Tribune promo department was thinking when they came up with this ad, which is a call for submissions to the paper's Top Places to Work contest:

The implication of the Weekend Schmeekend slogan on the mug is that if you love your job, you want to spend all of your time there.

My conception of a lovable job is one that allows not only fulfilling work while at the job, but also a life outside of the job. I think that's probably pretty common among human beings, especially the ones with families.

So what's up, Star Tribune? How do you define a top place to work? Does it have to look like a Foxconn factory?
