On March 15th, Spain, according to the British Guardian, the Spanish government recently accepted the proposal of a four-day work system. Meetings will be held in the next few weeks to discuss the possibility of implementation. The government indicated that it could take the lead in launching small-scale pilot projects for interested companies. The Spanish Electoral Union stated that the time has come to work 32 hours a week, and Spain will become one of the first countries in the world to implement a four-day work system.
Quite interesting. If these people only work 32 hours a week, then take 80% of their salary, and take three days off just to bask in the sun on the beach near their home, then of course it’s okay. It may even solve the local employment rate (equivalent to a few shifts, and Spain’s employment rate has been worrying). If these people dream of spending an extra day in each week for spending (shopping or long-distance vacation trips), then they will soon start complaining that their income is not enough to spend on recreational entertainment. Even if their annual salary remains unchanged. Income in Spain is very low in Europe. One-and-a-half days of consumption a week (if not open in many places on Sundays, half a day is counted) becomes two and a half days a week, which is not a small increase. (Actually, I have heard a lot of such complaints in Europe. Many people complain that they are so poor and don’t know where to go and what to do on vacation…) However, if they work four days a week and their salary remains the same, it is estimated that the bosses will also Can’t hold on for long… (2021.03.18. Addition: Someone told me that the Spanish government made up the difference and the salary remained unchanged… I was really shocked by the wealth and generosity of the Spanish government! I don’t know how long this act of making up the difference can last. ……) In fact, after my second child, I only work three and a half days a week, 28.5 hours/week. Similar to the survival status of the subject. The two babies feel really tired when they are making trouble, and they feel bored when they eat and play by themselves. Originally, the extra time to travel was really good, but now that the new crown seals the country, it is boring to wander around the door every day. Fortunately, my family is in a scenic area. Everyone has also seen that I have been playing minimalist and divorced in my home for the past two years. Therefore, I admire Spain’s proposal to increase vacations during the new crowning of the country. Are they going to stay three days a week? According to statistics, single young people have nowhere to go during the new crown, depression and appointments have grown rapidly. In fact, there are too many vacations and it is not as good as everyone thinks.
