    Default 4 Day Work Week

    Spain is starting a trial:
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...y-working-week

    Surprise quote:
    “Spain is one of the countries where workers put in more hours than the European average. But we’re not among the most productive countries,”

    Why do I have a feeling they are way more laid back than stats indicates?

    And what's the your take on 4 day work week? Would this help our travel industry to recover if every weekend is a long weekend?

    Spain puts in more hours than the European average?

    How low is the European average? How many of those hours are spent napping?

    I would love a 4 day work week and I feel I woukd be equally productive. I'm basically in 4 days pay now anyway.
    Let's all work on positivity this week.

    4 days would be ideal, 4x10 would be easy, I miss that from working with the city over summers

    I’d be bored out of my mind working four days a week. Don’t have the income to do anything fun on that extra day.

    I worked four-10's for years and while it's great and I did prefer it; it wasn't all ham & plaques. Throw a bit of a commute in there and you're a long way from feeling like leaping out of bed on Friday morning. Plus, your slutty wife is going to have an eternal list of shit for you to do that (every) Friday that's extremely unfair and will change the balance of your regular weekend.

    It's better, but it's not a silver bullet.

    The key is you just need to get on with the city of calgary, get the sweet sweet 'standard' 37 hour work week and every 3rd friday off

    I'd be happy to go down to a 5 day work week.

    I have been doing 3 day work weeks for the last 6.5 years, and I love it. I can't imagine going back to working 5 days a week... I like my extra time off. I used to do a lot of overtime, but that has dried up mostly.

    Israel works Sunday-Friday. Friday being a short day and Saturday off. We should be more like Israel.

    Instead of 4 days, 10 hours, can we do 3 days, 12 hours? I've done 3 months straight at 12 hours so anything is better than limping into Friday on a 5 day work week.

    They'd be wrong. Their GDP per capita is still shit.

    I miss my CoC Golf Courses summer job back in Uni. 4x 9.5 hour shifts to get you to 38 hours a week, excellent benefits, and $21/hr for selling beer and hot dogs and checking people in. Amazing pay for the times (2007-2011)

    Back when I was single, I worked 4x10s and took a weekend job p/t at a warehouse driving forklift for shits and giggles.

    I think it's clear they really need to call it a 32 hr work week instead of a 4-day work week. Doesn't seem to matter where these programs get brought up, the pros and cons of a 4x10 schedule or other compressed schedules based on a 40 hour work week is what takes over when that isn't what is being proposed.
