I'm Down With This

Friday's off...forever:

"Forget everybody working for the weekend. In Utah all government employees have shifted to a four-day workweek, and the state is calling it a win-win-win for its budget, workers and clean air. Utah has saved $1.8 million in electrical bills in the last year, the air has been spared an estimated 6,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, and workers are thrilled. Eighty-two percent of them say they prefer the new arrangement, which still enforces the 40-hour week by requiring 10 or more hours a day Monday - Friday."

Spread the word.

YES! Been lobbying for that for ages (and actually got to experience it a few years ago). Money comes and goes but time is unrecoupable.
