The quest for a four-day working week

It could have been much different. Back in 2019, two leaders from opposite ends of the political spectrum focused on their country. Boris Johnson boldly set up his cabin: “Get Brexit done”. Jeremy Corbyn promised to strengthen labor rights. The public strongly chose Johnson.

Nearly two years later, can the Prime Minister unknowingly realize one of Corbyn’s policies? The former Labor leader proposed a shorter working week before the 2019 general election.

A short working week will be popular with the public. A new survey by the Survey this week found that nearly half of the British public support the abolition of the five – day working week. 48% work 5 days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. A standard week of up to 5 is seen to be abolished and 37% prefer to stay.

Will Boris Johnson have to follow this policy in the near future if the current energy crisis escalates?

In 1974 a wave of strikes and industrial action began a three-day working week and the government rationed electricity consumption.

Jeremy Corbyn’s dream of a short working week could come to an end.
