Do We All Need 40 Hour Weeks to Do Our Jobs?

least The traditional workweek (i.e. Monday to Friday, 9AM to 5PM) has been our way of life for the past 100 years. We are so much more productive now than we were a 100 years ago, yet we continue to work the same hours. What if we decided to work less? Iceland recently ran a massive four-day workweek experiment that had tremendous results in terms of productivity and morale.

CBC Radio invited me to talk about this topic on several of their radio stations across Canada. I gave between 6AM and 9AM Eastern tomorrow in the shows listed below. I link to the recording posted by Labrador Morning.
