a four-day work week

The New Zealand company behind a landmark trial of a four-day working week has declared it a success and will be adopting the new schedule full time.
Almost 250 staff at Perpetual Guardian, a company which manages trusts, wills and estate planning, trialled a four-day working week over March and April this year, working four eight-hour days but getting paid for five.
I used to think California was the place to look for the next social revision. Now I wonder if that place is not New Zealand.

I also wonder if this potential sigh of relief doesn't bring with it an unseen danger: It's not easy, not-working.
