Greens push a four-day week

GREENS leader Richard Di Natale (pictured) is calling for a national debate about introducing a shorter working week. "We rightly talk about the 16% of people who want to work more hours, but we never hear about the more than one in four Australians who want to work less,” he told the National Press Club in Canberra yesterday. "A four day work week or a six-hour day might actually make us happier and create more opportunities for others, not to mention reducing the costs of full-time child care.” The idea was gaining traction on his Facebook page.
