English term or phrase: straitjacket
The eight-hour, five-day week is a straitjacket on this kind of working. Let's ditch the nine-to-five and the "clocking on" culture, and work according to our own individual patterns.

Δεν μου ταιριάζει η λέξη 'ζουρλομανδύας' εδώ. Κάτι άλλο?

Greek translation:κορσές, ασφυκτικός κλοιός
Explanation:
Κορσές ή και στενός κορσές είναι η μεταφορική σημασία του straitjacket, αυτό που μας εμποδίζει να δράσουμε ελεύθερα. Άλλες λέξεις που μπορεί να ταιριάζουν:
(ασφυκτικός) κλοιός, μέγγενη

Ίσως σκεφτώ κι άλλα.
