    Yes, let's start a revolution!  I want longer weekends, too!  This 5 day work week garbage is terrible.

    Join a union.  Unions are the only organizations that exist soley to represent workers.  They are the reason you have a weekend and don't have to work 12 hour days.

    Work for yourself and you can take as many days as you want. Only trouble is, you usually end up working seven days a week instead of five.

    If you are referring to extended weekends in the US, it will never happen.

    The US is a highly capitalistic country. Since, increased weekends will only lower business productivity, it's a guarantee that businesses will be bitterly resilient.

    Don't sleep! You'll have another 6-10 hours each day if you don't sleep so the weekend will feel at least a day longer, and heck! half the time people don't know what day it is when they don't sleep so it works out for everyone... untill u forget its monday.... and lose your job.... well then... I guess you would have a LONG weekend!

    I kid!

    Some jobs have 3 days weekends. You work Mon-Thur instead of Mon-Fri like most jobs. You can become a nurse even. Most nurses work 3 days out of the week, but 3 - 12 hour shifts.
