The former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang told Business Insider that the US was past due to implement a four-day workweek to better accommodate American workers.
As health experts say that life as we know it may not return until next year, Yang told Business Insider in an interview that a four-day workweek could be more imperative than ever.
“It would help get us off of this hamster wheel that we’re on right now, where we’re all sort of racing against the clock in service of this like giant capital-efficiency machine,” Yang said. “And the race is driving us all crazy.”
“All of the key drivers that make your business a more successful business will improve as a consequence of this strategy,” Andrew Barnes, a cofounder of the nonprofit platform 4 Day Week Global, told Business Insider.
