People Want To Normalize Four-Day Work Weeks And I Would Love To Know Your Take
A study in Iceland called a shorter work week "an overwhelming success."
What would you do with an extra day off each week? Participants in a four-year study in Iceland just got to answer that question for real, and researchers are calling it a huge success.
And a report by the Association for Democracy and Sustainability and the think tank Autonomy says that as of now, 86% of Iceland's population has already either made the switch to this shorter schedule or has gained the right to negotiate for a shorter week.
Based on the great results of the trial, unions pushed for workers to get the right for a shorter week. Um, BRB, moving to Iceland.
And over on Reddit in r/Futurology, people are having a really interesting conversation about these findings and what they could mean about the future of work.
