Letter: 4-day week has a money problem

The four-day workweek was an idea some businesses tried in the 1980s or ’90s [“Four-day week lets employees be ‘fully human,’” July 30]. The employees of those businesses initially praised the idea. Every weekend was a three-day weekend—more time to travel, party, etc.

Then those employees realized that they were spending more and realized that there was too much month left at the end of the money. Employees then asked to go back to the five-day workweek.
