Vote for Margaret…

December 27, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Margaret Beegle, who characterizes herself a “Worker and activist”, has posted the suggestion that the work week be reduced to 30 hours to Barack Obama’s website, Change.Org:

Institute the 30 hour work week, i.e. a 6-hour work day. That means four instead of three shifts. It would give people time to actually be citizens, time to volunteer, raise children, develop themselves and their capabilities. It would allow the absorption of returning soldiers and employ the laid-off and others.

It has been more than 100 years since the fight for a shorter work week. The new millennium presents us with a new opportunity to develop human creativity.

The suggestion has garnered 32 votes so far, and need an additional 868 vote to make it into the second round of consideration.

We would encourage all readers to register to the site and give her idea a vote.
