Former Presidential Candidate Says The US Should Seriously Consider Four Day Work Weeks
Andrew Yang, former US presidential candidate and entrepreneur, thinks the United States needs to seriously consider a 4 day work week.
Here is Mr. Yang's tweet:
"3-Day weekends are better than 2-Day weekends. We should seriously look at 4-day workweeks. Studies show that we would be just as productive. It would create jobs at the margins and improve mental health." - Andrew Yang
An experiment was done by Microsoft's Japan subsidiary, transitioning to a four day work week. What happened? There was a 40% increase in productivity! What do you think about a four day work week, where you work?
Thus could help with employees being stressed, help out with childcare issues, increase the amount of Busch Light I buy....wait, what?
I'm all about better mental health for all, but would this really fly in the good ole USA?
