The 4-Day Workweek Could Possibly Become Official in the US by Federal Law

Rep. Mark Takano discusses the benefits of the 32-hour workweek.

A four-day workweek could be happening in the United States. So far, several companies in the U.S. have cut the typical five-day workweek to four. However, California Rep. Mark Takano has recently reintroduced the bill that supports the 32-hour that would turn it into a federal law.

“Workers across the nation are collectively reimagining their relationship to labor — and our laws need to follow suit,” Takano said in his March 1 statement.

He continued, “We have before us the opportunity to make common sense changes to work standards passed down from a different era. The Thirty-Two Hour Workweek Act would improve the quality of life of workers, meeting the demand for a more truncated workweek that allows room to live, play and enjoy life more fully outside of work.”

Takano also took to social media to elaborate. “The data is in & the time is now to modernize work culture for the better,” he tweeted. “I’m reintroducing the 32-Hour Workweek Act to allow workers to begin reclaiming their time, and their lives, with no loss of pay.”

Stay tuned for more updates and check out his tweets below.
