Four-day: the opportunity to relax or compulsion to seek additional work

23
Against the backdrop of an avalanche-like tightening of the state’s social policy, a great public outcry among Russians was caused by the proposal of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to switch the Russian economy to a four-day working week.


Four-day: the opportunity to relax or compulsion to seek additional work


The media began an active discussion of the proposed innovation. This initiative was supported by many State Duma deputies, considering such a transition to a “four-day-old” an opportunity for many compatriots to relax more, spend time with their family, and take up their health or self-education.

But does Medvedev’s idea deserve a positive assessment if you weigh the pros and cons? What will the four-day work week bring to the Russians? Why do they want to transfer us to the "four-day"? According to Oleg Komolov, would Medvedev’s proposal be rightly called not a reduction, but a consolidation of the working week? What is the idea of ​​transition to a four-day work week really based on?

And, perhaps, the main question of this initiative is: is it possible in the current state to reduce the number of working days in a week without lowering the level of wages? Indeed, for representatives of the elites, including the deputy corps, an extra day off can really be a day off, and for ordinary citizens it can be a push or even forced to seek additional work.

Answers to these and other questions in the program “Prime numbers” with Oleg Komolov.

    Remembering some of the "comrades" from this site who promote the thesis that "Stop whining, you need to work! I’m working on two jobs, if necessary, I’ll find a third, and I have enough money for everything!" still forced to seek additional work.
    And then the government will make the lips a bow, the edges of the house: "This is your personal initiative, dear fellow citizens. We did not force you to look for a second job. We, on the contrary, have introduced a four-day ..."
    PySy. Edros win almost all over the country. Well, nothing can convince our people that when they have you, it’s bad, but “if there wasn’t war”, it’s just a mantra ... Again, let's jump on the same rake.

      After re-election in Armenia, the ruling party received less than 5% of the vote. What's the secret ?

    Is this a mockery or are they so divorced from the people that they understand nothing? For example, in the Ministry of Emergency Situations, people who officially work one day after three have additional earnings, despite all the prohibitions.

      I also misunderstand. According to understanding, a person worked 40 hours a week and accordingly received, it will become 32 hours, for a month this will be the third part. Accordingly, the salary is not a third less. So the third part will be replaced by state workers. Or am I misunderstanding something?

        Maybe they are in the holy confidence that the employer will pay for a part-time week as for a full one?

        "Or am I misunderstanding something?" - There was no talk about the reduction of working hours per week.

          Then the working day will be 10 hours, it turns out like this. Maybe not everyone can withstand such a load.

            "Maybe not everyone can withstand such a load." - And not everybody will survive until retirement at 65.

    "The proposal of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to switch the Russian economy to a four-day working week," obviously age is quiet and takes its toll, rowing on the gallery five days a week has become difficult and asks for a four-day week.
    In fact, the initiative comes down to how officials, with the same workload, add to themselves and especially close financial allowances. No more than that. If there is work, then it must be done, so it will be possible to increase the salary by at least 20-60% out of the blue, because the additional 8 hours or a working day, previously mandatory, will be over-hours, and there will be a different tariff.

      Our government does not think of a goal of course and does not calculate the consequences of its decisions, or rather, in these miscalculations, the fate of people cares little for them, only personal interests ..

        The only reasonable explanation, otherwise how to coordinate the four-day period with raising the retirement age and the influx of Asian migrants.

    Four-day: the opportunity to relax or compulsion to seek additional work

    Somewhere it will also be necessary to find this extra work. Not in all cities, you can find it, but in districts and villages, in general, you can forget about additional income.

    I noticed such a thing: As soon as the government begins to "take care of the welfare of the people" - the people become poorer! fool

    We will soon work with such inventors only on Wednesdays and marvel at our standard of living .. And so no one sows, does not plow, does not collect and does not form a gross product .. Life is "on the pipe" and this funny "4-day" is needed only previously successfully stolen a lot, who, tired of the overabundance of joys of life, are also trying to "spend time with their family, take care of their health" .. At the same time, it is also desirable at a government expense to fly somewhere from Moscow on the weekend.

    The next "breakthrough" from Medvedev - the first friend of our radiant and moon-faced.
    Although from Medvedev? Or maybe from "himself"?
    After all, everyone knows that without his royal permission Medvedev even ... well, in general, you understand!

    First, under the approval of the god-like, they carried out "pension reform."
    Now they have decided a 4-day week, a bit later, apparently, they will do a 3-day week, then 2 ...
    At the same time, they will pay wages only for the hours worked ... because they did not earn ...
    But when we move on to the one-day week, we can safely wrap ourselves in a sheet and crawl to the cemetery, because there will already be nothing to eat ... They didn’t earn ... you know ...

    It seems like M. Thatcher is credited with the phrase that in Russia there will be enough 15 million people to service the gas pipe.
    Now in Russia there are 146 million people. Thatcher would be very unhappy. It's a lot!

    So, work Dima, work ... Ahead you still have things to do - no end!
    And it will be rewarded to you according to your deeds!

    This is already too much. Or a bird cut it. It is not visible to average minds to catch a flight of thoughts.
