As American workers are quitting their jobs in record numbers, 4.3 million is August 2021, and 4.4 million in September, managers are trying to raise wages and offer incentives. A new survey is showing support for a four-day workweek.
A financial firm asked Americans between ages 22 to 35 who quit their jobs what could be done to persuade them to stay. Over 30 percent said they would stay if a four-day work week was offered. That perk came right behind those saying they would stay for more money. The report showed 80% support a four-day workweek.
The other 20% said they were either against it or neutral to the idea. Employees with Bachelor’s Degrees said they were “burned out” and that was the reason they left their position. There are many jobs available around the world. If you are willing to relocate and would like to find a better job, contact Jobs Across the World.

The four-day workweek is not a new idea, but the pandemic and the overwork that happened due to trying to play catch up has reinvigorated the idea. Last summer, a congressman from California proposed legislation that would change the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to reduce the normal workweek to 32 hours instead of the 40-hour model. He compared the socioeconomic shift of the 1930s to today’s pandemic era. Submit your resume to Jobs Across the World and find the perfect job.
