time famine
 n.— «In the institute’s study, a new phrase is referred to what seems to reflect the condition of many working people: It’s “time famine.” The research shows that “67 percent of employed parents say they don’t have enough time with their husbands or wives—up from 50 percent in 1992—and 55 percent say they don’t have enough time for themselves.”» —“Flexibility is cure for ‘time famine’” by Carol Kleiman Houston Chronicle (Texas) July 2, 2004.
