Should we move to a four day week?

Radio One, thank you comrades:

Given the impact that automation will have it seems inevitable.

Yes and ho!

Mate, feel free to run with the “what about the service workers who will have to work more to facilitate office drones’ leisure time”, but let’s not pretend the country turns to anarchy at 5pm every Friday.

I mean, everyone should have the opportunity to work less and enjoy more leisure time. Maybe we should just abandon the idea of Saturday and Sunday as special days off altogether.

Probably use the extra day for some exercise and the day for admin.

Tuesday for me

People will generally want to coordinate days off because they want to spend free time together and we reserve special events for the weekend when the majority of people have free time, but is there any real need for that?

The whole concept of the shorter working week is predicated on it not inconveniencing anyone in the slightest.

We could split the population into people who want Saturday off to watch football and the rest of us, and both groups would have better lives.

but bank hoidays when you have to SERVE people are the worst. so not that.

I don’t see why not. Used to work at a place that did half days on Friday - amazing how it focuses everyones mind.

“Well, we could do the meeting at 1pm and leave a bit later?”
“Oh, no no no. Lets just sign it off now. Job done”
