A year ago, the Beehive State became the first in the U.S. to mandate a four-day workweek for most state employees, closing offices on Fridays in an effort to reduce energy 租房子costs. The move is different from a furlough in that salaries were not cut; nor was the total amount of time employees work. They pack in 40 hours by starting earlier and staying later four days a week. But on that fifth (glorious) 花蓮民宿day, they don't have to commute, and their offices don't need to be heated, cooled or lit.After 12 months, Utah 's experiment has been deemed so successful that a new acronym could catch on: TGIT (thank God it's 租屋Thursday). The state found that its compressed workweek resulted in a 13% reduction in energy use and estimated that employees saved as much as $6 million in gasoline costs. Altogether, the initiative will cut the state's 網路行銷greenhouse-gas emissions by more than 12,000 metric tons a year. And perhaps not surprisingly, 82% of state workers say they want to keep the new schedule.

Those who didn't tended to have young children and difficulty finding extended day care.

Private industry is interested as 票貼well — General Motors has just instituted a workweek of four 10-hour days at several of its plants. "There is a sense that this is ready to take off," says R. Michael Fischl, an associate dean at the University of Connecticut 帛琉's law school, which is organizing a symposium on four-day weeks.
