I work 9 hr days now... what's one more hour!
In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.
We did this for a while about 6 months ago and it was hell because you would have to work Friday anyway, so you just ended up work 5 X 10. People are less productive the more hours they work. I vote no.
BTW, I have been working 7 days a week for the last couple months so it wouldn't be bad right now. It's hard on families though.
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
Utah is going back to a 5 day a week work week.
Mods, feel free to move this to Politics/Religion if you want.
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
If they actually want to save money they should go to a 4 day 8 hour week, and cut everyone's salary 10%.
Employees would like it because they would get 3 day weekends every week, and only lose 10% of their pay versus 20% of their time.
10% of all salaries would be huge.
Extra time off isn't enticing to me in the slightest.

24 Years and Counting...
I work 12 hour shifts 4 on 4 off
3 on 3 off. Work every other Sunday and Mon- Wed for 7 weeks and Thur-Sat 7 weeks. Night shift 7 to 7. I love 3 days off 1 week and 4 off the next. I couldn't live with 2 days off anymore.
My kids are 10 and 14 and I do miss some things but sometimes I have extra time with them.
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
If Thursday becomes the new Friday, will people learn to hate working on Thursday?

Four day work week? When is Hump Day?
I just started 4 10's with Monday's off a few weeks ago. So far I like it a lot. My work day didn't extend later though, I come in two hours earlier each day. To top it off when a Holiday falls on a Monday I get the prior Friday off too for a 4 day weekend. no complaints here!
Plus when it's a vacation day, I feel like you get a better deal if you book it so that you leave the hotel on Monday versus checking in on Friday/
When people say that I don’t know what I’m talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
