If you’ve got a full-time job, chances are you’re working eight hours or more a day, probably Monday to Friday.
Of course, many of us work a lot more – Elon Musk said in a recent New York Times profile that he clocks up to 120 a week, pretty much obliterating any opportunity he has for work-life balance.
So in an effort to improve workers’ work-life balance, companies and governments around the world are experimenting with cutting working hours. It’s a move that attracts huge interest – a recent trial from New Zealand generated international headlines by cutting the work week from five days to four.
