Work less, save planet
Need a reason to work less? A couple of bloggers have come up with two arguments for spending less time at the office — while feeling like you're doing the environment a favor.
As a result, workers would be getting just as much money as before the reduction in hours —but putting in 10 percent fewer hours. If workers have the same amount of money, then demand in the economy will be the same. At the same time, firms would then need to hire more workers to meet this demand, since they would be getting 10 percent fewer hours from each worker.
Dave goes on to point out the ecological benefits of a shorter work week, including wasting less natural resources and polluting less.
