Shorter Work Week Talks In Finland

"Talks" is the operative word

Finland is already cited as the happiest country in the world, which is probably why the world was eager to jump onto the idea that the nation was considering making its citizens even happier by implementing a four-day work week. It turns out that it was only a panel discussion and not a policy change at all, but is a four-day work week a good idea?

It's a trend that's been predicted for years, and the rationale behind it is that it will produce more productive workers. This has been proven in some tests and real life implementation. Some also argue that it will lead to healthier, happier citizens who need less time off due to their increased health and better job satisfaction, but without a change in pay, it's not a feasible solution for many people.

What do you think of the idea? Do you think people with shorter work weeks would be healthier? Why or why not?
