ANOTHER ARGUMENT FOR A FOUR-DAY WORK WEEK
How would you like to work four days a week? Don’t be surprised if it happens. Research is showing that a shorter work week may be more productive and make more sense than 40 hours.
Workforce Institute did a study and it turns out that 45% those asked say that, if they worked uninterrupted, they could could do their jobs in less than five hours a day. Working interrupted is tricky, but it can be done. Modern distractions would have to be gotten rid of.
There used to be a clean line between life and work, but not anymore and it comes in handy with the possibility of a four day work week. One company tried a shorter work week and the productivity was so high that it’s now a permanent schedule.
The Workforce Institute study revealed some other nuggets of info that may help the cause. 34-percent of workers told the Workforce Institute that’s the schedule they’d pick if their pay didn’t change, compared to 20-percent who said they’d work three days a week, and 28-percent said they’d work the traditional five-day week.
The crazy part is, some would take a pay cut for more time home, 24% of U.S. respondents said they’d take a 20% salary cut to work one day less per week.
Here’s to the future (without a pay cut).

Rapper Vanilla Ice Was on John F. Kennedy Contagion Flight From Dubai
Rapper Vanilla Ice was one of the unlucky passengers on boardan Emirates flight from Dubai quarantined for hours at John F. Kennedy Airport Wednesday.
The “Ice Ice Baby” hit maker was returning from a show in Dubai when he found himself on Flight 203 to JFK, where about 100 people complained of feeling sick on board.
"So I just landed from Dubai and now there is like tons of ambulances and fire trucks and police all over the place," he tweeted.
Well a couple people got sick on the plane and it must be pretty serious because there's a lot of people out there," he says as he looks out the window at a mass of emergency response vehicles on the runway.
