Should There Be a 4 Day Working Week?

Ask a Question

After this lockdown I think people should have the option of working 4 days a week as this period has highlighted that work is not everything.

Not everyone can afford to do that sadly has a lot hope for overtime every week

Would be great if we got paid the same! Definitely up for that. But that'll not happen.

My husband has been doing a 4 days week for years. He works his full time hours over the four days, it works well for us.

I'd love to, but on a full time. I'm not sure i could spend 2 extra hours a day on the computer. My eyes wouldn't thank me.

I sometimes work 7 days a week so although 3 days off sounds great, it wouldn't work for all industries. There probably is a correlation between businesses who are finding it easy to have their staff working from home during this time and those who could adjust to offering a four day week. I think any business who offer a product that is not a constant consumer facing service could potentially do it eg. marketing companies.

Dennab I feel sorry for the people in the gig economy and don't have set hours or a contract.

The people who I don't feel sorry for are the self employed who haven't disclosed their full earnings in the past and now have to go on furlough.

TheChimp I have my fingers in several pies as to how I get paid so it's mixed but definitely a loss overall. A friend of mine just left a good job a few months back to become self-employed so he has no tax return for 2018 - 2019. That's another flaw in the plan.

Freebiesarefun I suppose there's nothing stopping you doing that because people work all week and then do another job at the weekend.

Work might not be everything but with people not working the economy is crumbling

RnD194hd Crumbling because the country voted in a prime minister who got this whole thing very wrong. It's the same population who allowed Brexit to happen which is also going to impact the economy so we can't be putting all the blame on a virus.

Dennab what a load of nonsense. Do you proof read the rubbish you put?

I reckon most industries will reassess the working hours of staff and cut most contracts, perhaps considering job share arrangements

How about working one extra hour a day (4 hours in total) and having Wednesday afternoon off instead?
