How long have you been wanting to take a day off from your daily five-day routine and yet was unable to convince your boss? Well think no more researchers from New Economics Foundation believe that if working four days per week technique could be adopted then at least 12 – 13 % of the poorest people of United Kingdom could stay in a better condition by the year 2030.
So, according to them, the work environment would be in a better shape if the minimum wage is higher and people work four days per week.
There has been a decrease in the productivity of UK laborers, and it has been going up for the past ten years. So there had to be something done to tarnish this depressing picture.
Alfie Stirling from New Economics Foundation told that the problems are profound and intense which range from inequality to the old population so this policy of the working environment needs to be equally transformative.
If the wages are increased by £19 per hour then eventually by 2030 there would be visible changes in the salaries of the earners even those at the bottom, for they will see a rise in their income up to 26 percent while those at the top of the pyramid would see a decrease of 8 percent which will lead to equality.
Labor Party is one of the major parties which support this reformation; their shadow chancellor endorsed this view and said that they might work towards relieving the workers to a certain extent.
He also added that British people work five days a week but they are less productive in comparison to German and French People because they have already applied this four-day work policy.
Trade unions also have supported for bringing this change in the working environment.
The General Secretary of Trade union congress recently has addressed their convention by saying that in the previous century they campaigned for eight hours per day, but in the 20th century, they had won their right to two day weekend holiday and simultaneously paid for holiday to their workers.
So for the 21st century, they have fixed their aim to grab for themselves a four-day work and equal pay for every worker and not to allow those in the power position to enjoy all the privileges for themselves.
