QW 011312 “300/30 Topic 3”

It’s the third QW 30/300 “write more than 300 words in 30 minutes” piece. You’re also invited to write on the same topic and post pour product on QWF.

【Topic 3】
The company you work for is considering starting a four-day workweek, with employees working 10 hours a day. What do you think of that idea? Give reasons or examples to support your opinion.


From the employee’s viewpoint, I’d say I prefer to work five days a week instead of four days. I’m afraid that a four-day work week might be beneficial for an employer in a sense that he or she can possibly curtail the commute expenses that are to be paid for employees and cut other kind of cost, but not for their employees. As a worker myself, I won’t buy a four-day workweek. My points are as follows.

First, workers and employees can work more efficiently when they work for seven or eight hours for five days rather than ten hours for four days. Working long hours wears workers down and reduces their productivity. I can never imagine myself sitting at the desk in front of my pc and doing my work for ten hours. The longer I have to work, the more breaks I will need to keep my concentration and efficiency. It would impair the overall productivity in the long run.


Second, a four-day workweek means that workers have three days off for which they will end up spending more money. If you have three consecutive offs for example, you may feel like taking a short trip and spend much money on your recreation. It should be perfectly okay for you to spend your break in such a way, but if you have three consecutive days off every week, you will run out of the ideas on how you spend your break. Three days off are just too long for most of the workers, I think.

From those two points mentioned, I don’t think that a four-day work week is a good idea for workers. They might prefer working five days a week for shorter hours each day.
