32 Hours and 4-Day Work Week - It Is Happening
I’m no labor expert beyond that I am a drone like most everyone else. Working from anywhere is no longer a phenomenon due to the pandemic. A great number of folks will not be returning to the office. With that said and one with, here is one that will excite almost everyone - 4-day work weeks or as I like to say, three day weekends! Oh, and some might call it 32 hours work week, whether that is 7 hours a day or actually just 4-day work week depends on the company, I guess.
So, I’m going to start tracking articles as I come across them - stories about who is implementing the 4-day work week, where it is happening, and what government regulations might be involved.
Here is the first one:
