Longer Work Day For Longer Weekend Appealing To Canadians

But a three-day week seems a stretch

An Angus Reid survey finds seven in ten Canadians would prefer to work a ten-hour day over four days rather than stick with the current five day week.

And while a three day work week seemed a very real possibility to half of Canadians in 1985, just 13 per cent now think it will happen.

Angus Reid says it appears “that despite growing recognition of impending job losses – not to mention the high number of Canadians who say that technology will eliminate more jobs than it creates going forward – two-thirds of residents do not expect to be working less.”
