Have worked multiple shifts schedules. 4 10 hour shifts is by far my favorite. Very much yes. Would promote greater work/life balance. And be prepared for less benefits. Better productivity and less pollution. Win/Win To me, this sounds like an opportunity to keep your children away from you, and indoctrinate them for an extra 8hrs a week. Knowing this site, as well as the people pushing for this, I'd say that it's exactly the intent. One day when I have kids, I'm going to homeschool them.

Yes! The science shows that people actually accomplish more with a short week, at least in an office setting. Turns out treating people like slaves just makes them try to work less. But hell, I'll even take 4-10s over 5-8s if you insist hours = work. Absolutely. Most people don't work too hard on Fridays anyway. A shorter week also keeps workers more focused because deadlines stay the same.

I'm always up for 4-10s. “Do you think you should have to work less hours but still get paid the same?” 💯 yes.

They aren't chained to a job they hate because of health insurance, average 6 week per year vacation = more productivity
