A Four-Day Work Week?
Four hours a day? It sounds ludicrous. But given lunch hours, a.m. and p.m. kaffee klatches, potty breaks, chit-chat, personal phone calls and e-mails, my bet is that Marshall’s four hours of productivity is about right.
Meanwhile, with a four-day work week folks can take a couple of hours over the long weekend to deal with e-mail and arrive back at work on Monday “with fresh minds and an optimistic outlook,” plus a good feeling that they saved money on transportation and contributed to the well-being of the planet.
