    The Case For A 4-Day Workweek

    The Case For A 4-Day Workweek

    The five-day workweek can feel as preordained as the number of minutes in an hour, but it hasn't always been the norm. Workers fought for a Monday-to-Friday schedule before it became standard in the U.S. in the 1930s. Since then, the nature of work has changed a lot, and now, workers are once again fighting for better conditions, says U.K.-based researcher Will Stronge.

    In this episode, Stronge, who co-wrote the book Overtime: Why We Need a Shorter Working Week, discusses what's changed since the 30s and what a shorter workweek offers workers and organizations.

Very Helpful

These podcasts are very helpful. I would like to listen to one on how to refinance student loans. In a little over a month the student loan deferment period will end. Some are paying the federal government rates as high as 10% on their loans. A podcast on this would be very timely.

Great show

I find the show topics really helpful. Also, being the pandemic it can be pretty lonely sometimes, but when I put this on I feel like I’m surrounded by a group of friends. I love all the hosts and the guest are usually dry interesting and really do want to help you. It makes life a little less dim. Thanks LK 💛
