Finland PM calls for 4-day, 6-hour working week. Twitterati wants to move to the country
Finland Prime Minister Sanna Marin has proposed the idea of a four-day-week and six-hour working day work schedule for the citizens of her country. This will allow people to spend more time with their families, Marin said. She also added that with a comfortable work schedule as such, people could also invest their time in other aspects of life.
"I believe people deserve to spend more time with their families, loved ones, hobbies and other aspects of life, such as culture. This could be the next step for us in working life," Sanna Marin said, The Daily Mail reports.
Sanna Marin, 34, is the world's youngest Prime Minister and assumed office in Finland on December 10, 2019. During her tenure as the Minister of Transport for Finland, Marin had also recommended shorter work weeks. Finland, at present, follows a five-day-week and eight-hour working day work schedule.
