California Considering 32-Hour Workweek

Already a fixture in some companies, the four-day workweek may extend to more of the US. California introduced a bill in the state assembly calling for companies with 500 or more employees to officially adopt a 32-hour workweek. Additional compensation, such as time and a half or double pay, takes effect as the worker's time increases beyond 32 hours or 6 days in a week. 

Impact? One-fifth of the state's workforce, about 2600 companies, fall under the proposed change. Opponents call the plan a "job killer," while proponents point to data collected from successful tests.
