El Paso-centric info and commentary from the Center of North America

Time Mag: 4-10 workweek is a success, mentions El Paso

From Time Magazine:

In an era when most of us seem to be working more hours than ever (provided we’re still lucky enough to have jobs), 17,000 people in Utah have embarked on an unusual experiment. A year ago, the Beehive State became the first in the U.S. to mandate a four-day workweek for most state employees, closing offices on Fridays in an effort to reduce energy costs. Managers from around the world have gotten in touch with Utah officials, and cities and towns including El Paso, Texas, and Melbourne Beach, Fla., are following the state’s lead. Private industry is interested as well — General Motors has just instituted a workweek of four 10-hour days at several of its plants.
