Mythical hours that hardly anybody works anymore. Some might still work 8 hours, but they're mostly not 9-5.
Do YOU work 9-5? Do ya punk?
a typical job that includes waking up in the morning, going to work, and coming home at night
"He never felt right holding down a 9-5 it made the ends meet but it never made him feel alive"
A traditional eight hour day shift.
In some companies, the 9-5 is really 8:30-5 or 9-5:30. It's an extra half hour because of an unpaid 30 minute lunch break. In companies where you're paid by the hour, it's so you don't lose out on 30 minutes of pay. In ones where you're paid by the year, it's pretty much squeazing the extra half hour out of you in order to make up for the 30 minute lunch.
It generally refers to working Monday through Friday but in modern times where services are expected to be availalble durring non business hours, evening and weekend shifts are becomming an increasingly required demand of employees.

The number of theses that Martin Luther posted up on the Wittenburg Church in Europe. This groundbreaking event shattered common belief and the Church's influence. His 95 theses sparked the reformation world wide. This gradually led to the Glorious revolution where Churches had less power, Catholic rule was decreased, and people became literate. Johannes Guttenburg's invention of the printing press helped Martin Luther spread his ideas like a wild fire.

In street lingo, or perhaps in slang version, 9-5 is an adjective that references having/living an average life workin' a typical hard-labor, low-wager job. Obviously this is conclusive of the general 9-5 definition of having a job that's essentially that 8-hour, 5 times a week shift. But back on street talk, it's being stuck with a dead end job that brings in enough money afford the minimal bills putting whatever food onthe table that comes by.
"C'mon Chris this new job at a super Wal-Mart will be like free money."
