In brief: Talk to a Podiatrist

This can be due to a lot of reasons- improper shoe selection, worn out shoes, or you may need some form of over the counter or prescribed arch supports.
Your podiatrist can diagnose the actual cause of your pain, and start you on appropriate treatment. Good luck!

In brief: Rest them

Perhaps you need to get more comfortable shoes.
I would also recommend giving your feet a rest and not standing for 'long hours'. If work requires it, perhaps you can get a stool to sit on or move around a little more. Good luck!
