Bernie Sanders Proposes 32-Hour Work Week Without Pay Reduction

Bernie Sanders proposes a bill to institute a 4-day, 32-hour work week to replace the standard 5-day, 40-hour work week. Although his bill is unlikely to pass, it has garnered quite a bit of attention. Several news outlets have picked it up, and specific social media influencers are clamoring about it. People across the country often feel exhausted and dedicate too much of their lives to the job, even with benefits such as paid time off and vacation. Such a bill is a breath of fresh air to these people.

The big catch is that Bernie Sanders does not want a financial penalty for a shorter work week. In other words, Sanders wants workers to be paid as if they worked a whole 40-hour, 5-day work week. Small business owners have chimed in on the 82-year-old Senator from Vermont’s request. They think it is ridiculous to ask employers to give their employees eight hours of pay with no productivity in return.
