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

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.
