Is it possible to switch to a four-day work week? [Poll]
The weekend seems to fly by, and employees often find themselves wishing for one more day off. Studies are finding that having more time off from work can increase productivity in workers.
Jim Gearhart asked listeners to phone in with their opinion on the matter. Many agreed that a four-day work week would increase productivity in workers, and would create a happier work environment. Others were not fond of the idea, saying that it would cause financial problems.
One caller brought up the point that this concept was around in the past, and while it would’ve worked then, it would not work in our economy today. It has become increasingly difficult to find work, and there are more financial issues today than there were in the past.
While a four-day work week might be great in theory, would it be possible in today’s working world?
