Petition Standardizing the work week to 4 days with a 3 day weekend.
Increased productivity for business (studies show that employees working a four-day work week are more productive and happier overall);
Cutting child care issues and costs, health problems from work related stress and an overall healthier work life balance.
Vastly improved work/life balance for employees & their families;
The family unit benefits from more time with parents at home;
Employees saving money on commuting to and from work, lunches, child care, etc;
Creation of part-time &/or casual positions to fill the rostering void Friday through Sunday (unless employers choose pay workers fairly for additional hours, which in most cases is not currently the case).
