I used to work that 10 hour shifts . I loved it as i did not have to commute as much.I even worked 12 hour shifts and I did not mind itas well although with 12 hour shifts you will spend the 1 day off just to catch up on your sleep.
I'd rather work Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and have the weekend and Wednesday off, seems more balanced that way. As for ten hour days... hmm, perhaps each day should have different hours. 6 Monday, 8 Tuesday, 10 Thursday, and 12 Friday or something like that to keep people on their toes.
Absolutely; it would save significantly (approximately 20%) on some costs (i.e. school bus use) and it may assist in getting our children to become more active in sports and recreation if we enhanced our park services a wee-bit...
Minikitten has an interesting idea, though I think I would have to do it opposite. I would rather start off strong and have the days become shorter as the week progresses.
I think four tens would be fine with me. It seems most people who have done it think it is great.
I hear we work eight hour days because the day is broken into three equal parts: one for work, one for sleep, and one for free time. The logic is flawed, however, because most of us actually have nine hours between the time we start and time we finish working (one hour for lunch in the middle, which I don't consider an hour of free time). Not to mention time to commute and get ready for work. This leaves us with very little free time during a workday.
One less lunch in the middle of a workday, one less day of commuting and getting ready for work each week would add up.
It would definitely depend on the job. My current job is a desk job. A 10 hour work day at a desk would be so mundane. However, if it were a job that was half sitting, half moving around, I would do it. Especially if it were for Google! They let their employees take naps!!
A four day week means the days would also be longer. Students can hardly focus for 7 hours let alone 10. Also most sporting events and other after school acivities are held on Fridays meaning many families wouldnt be able to leave town any way and students wouldn't really be able to do anything on Friday. Just my opinion.
Did you have a good shopping experience this past weekend?Now that Grey Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are over (almost over), how was the shopping? Did you buy? Did you stay home. Tell...
