Belgium switches to four-day work week
There will be 9.5 working hours a day, which means no change in weekly workload
After discussions in parliament, all major Belgian political parties agreed to a phased transition to a four-day working week, Qazet.az informs, citing Daily Mail.
There will be 9.5 working hours a day, which means no change in weekly workload. Further consideration of the bill is planned for next week.
“In general, we believe that the proposal will have a good impact on the comfortable life of workers, but the project needs to be finalized so that it is better adapted to reality,” said Meriem Almaji, chairman of the Green Party.
However, not all people supported the idea of reducing the working week while increasing the working hours per day.
