When I asked in this blog post what you thought about the potential of a four-day workweek you responded with great interest. I received a lot of positive feedback.
There were many questions as well. Business owners and workers alike wanted to know how it would impact them.
As we address the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have the opportunity to be a climate leader, make strategic investments and build a low-carbon, sustainable, just and inclusive economy for all.
The B.C. Green Caucus is committed to exploring and proposing ideas. We will continue promoting long term, evidence-based policies that address the inequalities and disparate impacts of COVID-19 on women, minority groups, low-paid workers and marginalized communities.
So as we began exploring the idea of a four-day workweek one of the first people that my colleague Sonia Furstenau and I connected with was Alex Soojung-Kim Pang. He is a futurist, founder of Strategy + Rest, and the author of Shorter: Work Better, Smarter and Less – Here’s How. In Shorter, Pang shares the stories of the innovators of the four-day workweek and how they have transformed their relationship with work.
Join my colleague Sonia Furstenau and I in a Facebook Live discussion with Alex Soojung-Kim Pang to find out what he has learned in his research on the four-day workweek.
