A new pilot program is helping U.S. companies transition to a 4-day workweek

Has society outgrown the 40-hour workweek?In 1940, Congress amended the Fair Labor Standards Act, making the 40-hour workweek law; overtime pay is required for anything more. Eighty years later, it is still standard to give workers two days off each week, even though today’s technology allows people to work anytime, from anywhere.The New Zealand based nonprofit 4 Day Week Global believes society is due for an update. The group provides support for those who want to make the four-day workweek a reality in their workplace.
