Four Day Work Week?
 
Its called T.G.I.T program. Utah started it last year and it seems to be working out VERY WELL for all people there. Check it out:

[QUOTE]A year ago, Republican Governor Jon Hunstman announced the Working 4 Utah initiative, essentially putting 17,000 of the state’s 24,000 executive branch employees on a 10 hour a day, four day a week schedule. The goal for the cash-strapped state was energy savings. Now that a full year has passed (we checked in on the program back in April), a clearer picture of the benefits is coming into focus.[/QUOTE]

Personally, I love this idea! Can you imagine it? You get long weekends EVERY weekend! And the commute....................With a 10 hour day everyone will be commuting at different times. No more of this 7:00am-9:00am HEADACHE that we all suffer now!

Ohh and think about it. When you do get a long weekend. IT WILL BE A LONG WEEKEND! Can you imagine it? A four day weekend? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME! You know, this Republican Governor needs to run for President! I would vote for him! :)

I would love to be able to work some sort of compressed work week. In this day and age it's surprising that so many companies aren't on board with this.

We have these options here. 9-5 5 days a week, 9/80 basically ever other friday off or a 8/80 every friday off. I just work the 9-5 because I don't want to be here 10 hours a day and everyone else in my family or friends work 9-5, I really don't have anything do on my Fridays off.

I'd love to have the 4 day work week. I could not tell my wife and every Friday get up and get dressed for work then go fishing or play golf. The hard part would be explaining to her why I was taking the boat to work.
