State Lawmakers Proposing Four Day Work Week

A proposal that state lawmakers are considering would create a four-day work week for companies with more than 500 employees. 

The proposal, titled Assembly Bill 2932, would shorten the standard workweek from 40 hours a week to just 32 hours, and companies would not be able to reduce how much employees earn with the potential change in hours. Supporters of the proposal say it would lead to more productive work environments and improve employee morale. Opponents of the bill, including the California Chamber of Commerce, believe it would increase labor costs and severely impact job growth at a time when businesses are recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as increase costs for company supplies.

The bill is still in its first steps and still needs to be voted on by the state Assembly, and has been co-authored by Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia and Evan Low. The bill is in its early stages and still needs to be voted on by the California Assembly.
