Are you working too much? Are we all working too much?

Dr. Peter Berg, a professor of employment relations at Michigan State University, discusses the growing popularity of the four-day workweek and its various forms.

The demand for flexibility, especially among younger workers, has led to the desire for a better work-life balance.

While these models have been around in Europe for decades, they are now gaining traction in the United States.

We talk about different implementations like four ten hour days; working 32 hours a week or 36 instead of 40; and some of the ways employers could make things more flexible and easier on employees. 

Tune in to learn more about the benefits and implications of the four-day workweek.
