Fox News reports "A new plan in Birmingham, Ala., will roll back work weeks for city employees to four days a week, an initiative that is expected to save the city's 4,000 commuters tens of thousands of dollars a year"
I have been a long time advocate of a four day work week. I think people would be more productive with a three day weekend to take care of personal items and relax. One could stagger employees letting some have off on Monday and others on Friday. Some might even like a mid-week break on Wednesday. I would increase the work day to 9 hours a day instad of the traditional 8.
Maybe someday a system like this can be worked out. It may be sooner than we all think.
