Re: Utah saves money by going to 4 day work week
Unless all schools and all workplaces also go to a four-day schedule, I would be opposed. The ten-hour day would be cutting two hours off the amount of time I can spend with my family each night. So-what if I'm off on Friday? They're in school or at work, so the time with them is not "made up" by being off on Fridays.
Furthermore, our house is a busy place on weeknights, with homework, dinner, baths, and everything else that needs doing. My wife and I do well to sit down for an hour each evening before bedtime. I can't imagine taking two hours away from our weeknight routine. Families spend too little time together as it is.
I think the four-day plan is fine for singles and couples without children, but I think it would put a strain on the family unit for those that have kids, unless everyone was on the same schedule.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
