Would A Four-Day Work Week Suit You?

Your Two Cents: Would a Four-Day Work Week Suit You?

While some employers have been proactive in coming up with ways to help their commuting employees with gross gas bills, several state and local governments are testing a new solution that doesn't involve assisting workers with getting to and from the office. In fact, it involves going to work one less day each week.

In Suffolk County on Long Island, Legislator Wayne Horsley has proposed a three month trial that would give employees the option of replacing five eight-hour shifts with four 10-hour shifts. He says the transition would save 461 barrels of oil in just 120-days. These experiments have been limited to public sector jobs so far, but it wouldn't be very surprising if private companies began testing the four-day week waters, too.
