Four Day Workweek / Compressed Work Week
« on: July 03, 2008, 09:23:24 PM »

I've been hearing rumors of this on the horizon for a while.  Would you prefer a compressed workweek?

Utah is going to a 4-day workweek to save energy

Starting next month, it will be "TGIT" for Utah state employees. As in: "Thank God It's Thursday."

In a yearlong experiment aimed at reducing the state's energy costs and commuters' gasoline expenses, Utah is about to become the first state to switch to a four-day workweek for thousands of government employees.

They will put in 10-hour days, Monday through Thursday, and have Fridays off, freeing them to golf, shop, spend time with the kids or do anything else that strikes their fancy. They will get paid the same as before.

We need it. What with Sunday being shot, and Saturday being that special day we get ready for Sunday, there's not much of a weekend.

Personally, I'd love to work 4 tens. The wife works 3 13s and that's pretty damn cool too.

That's a real purdy chart you got there.

What's it mean??  As near as I can tell it's certainly not the percentage of bastards per country otherwise we'd be at the top

That's the number of hours per year that you're not putting a shrimp on the barbie and drinking a Foster's.

I've been working that for 8 years now. The longer weekends are nice.

My schedule has changed a bit now but I still have 3 days off. I work M-T-T-F, 12 hour days.

I haven't walked into or phoned a federal/state gubermint office in at least 15 years.

I wonder if I can get some of my money back.
