(The Guardian) Carlos Slim calls for three-day working week to improve quality of life
Mexican billionaire says workforce could be spread over a full week, employees working up to 10 or 11 hours a day
Mexican billionaire tycoon, Carlos Slim, has called for the introduction of a three-day working week, offset by longer hours and a later retirement, as a way to improve people’s quality of life and create a more productive labour force.
Slim made the comments when speaking to a business conference in Paraguay, suggesting that the workforce could be spread over a full week, with employees working up to 10 or 11 hours a day.
“With three work days a week, we would have more time to relax; for quality of life,” the Financial Times reports Slim saying.
