The paycheck for a shorter work week would remain the same, but would require fewer trips to work, according to Nevada Small Business. This could afford American employees a more manageable work-life balance — especially adults with children.
The downsides, however, were scheduling conflicts with the decreased amount of availability for sales, meetings and other administrative tasks. Working an extra two hours a day could also be strenuous for those in labor-intensive jobs.
“The four-day week isn’t for every business or every employee,” Nevada Small Business wrote on its website. “Weigh the options, get input from staff, check the legal implications of switching over to a four-day work week.”
Rasmussen recruited 1,000 American adults for this poll. The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 3 percentage points with a 95-percent confidence level.
