Too Good To Be True? Billionaire Suggests 3-Day Work Week
How does a three day work week sound? One of the world's richest men says we all should be spending more time at home. Mexican telecom billionaire Carlos Slim is recommending a shorter work week. He argues that having four days off would boost productivity and improve quality of life. But, as you might imagine, his idea comes with a catch. The three-day work week would be off-set by longer work hours, like perhaps 11 hours a day, and a later retirement age of 70 or 75.
