Mexican billionaire proposes 3-day work week
MEXICO CITY (CNN Newsource) -- How would you like to only work three days a week?
One of the world's richest says we all should be doing it. According to the Financial Times, Mexican telecom billionaire Carlos Slim recommended a shorter work week at a business conference in Paraguay, but his idea comes with a catch.
The 3-day work week would be offset by longer work hours, like perhaps 11 hours a day, and a later retirement age of 70 or 75. Slim argues having four days off would boost productivity and improve quality of life.
