I have hear Bob Bright talk about his theory about the 4 day work week. Basically the idea spurs from the fact that as we have become more and more technologically based the need for jobs becomes less and less. An example, a cashier... we now have computers who are able to cash us out. In fact I was at the airport and there was this restaurant Boars Sandwich or something like that, where they actually have computer monitors where you type in exactly what sandwich you want with all the tops / extra / sides. You do it all. According to Bob practically every job really can be eliminated if you wanted to invest enough time & money into the engineering. Even you could replace the oldest profession... prostitution. I remember Howard Stern commenting about how he thought this one blow up doll was just as good as an ole' hooker. And if you take a look at the corporate workplace you'll find that everyone is faking it on the job. No one really works a full 8 hours. I knew this guy who I used to work with who got up to level 150 or something outrageous playing mindsweeper, or some game like that, why... because there just wasn't enough work to do, so he occupied his time playing mindsweeper So this unemployment # keeps on going up, and up...but we're really fighting an uphill battle, as technology increase so do the # of jobs. What bob has proposed is to make it a mandatory 4 day work week. Basically he's saying... We are so good w/ advancing technology that we really don't need people working 40 hrs a week. There just is not enough work. We have created machines to do the work for us. So cut the work week to 32 hours. And keep the pay the same. ` Opinions?
