Are the leaders of America's hardest-working city beginning to see the light?
Well, over in the U.K., workers at more than 30 businesses are taking part in a pilot, where the workweek is four days. They’re being asked to do the same amount of work as before, and for up to 35 hours per week, but this will be split over four days not five. They will also be paid the same as before.
And while it seems like a long shot given American work culture, the pandemic really changed things, according to New York Governor Kathy Hochul and NYC Mayor Eric Adams. This week, both of them admitted the five-day workweek may be a thing of the past.
On Tuesday, Governor Hochul spoke about the five-day workweek saying “it may never be a five-day week again,” according to The New York Post.
“It may be four days with flexibility,” she said. “It may be three and a half.”
