California Considering Shift To 32-Hour Workweek For Larger Companies
85074729
  • A new bill introduced in the California state assembly would make the official workweek 32 hours for companies with 500 or more employees.
  • The bill would also require employers to pay time-and-a-half to workers who run over the 32 hours.
  • One of the bill’s sponsors, assembly member Cristina Garcia, told the Los Angeles Times, that employers would also be barred from reducing workers’ pay because they are working less.
  • The California Chamber of Commerce has called the proposed legislation a “job killer,” but evidence from other countries suggests that a four-day workweek can actually boost productivity.
