Former Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang used the Memorial Day weekend to advocate for a four-day workweek on Twitter.
"3-Day weekends are better than 2-Day weekends.
It would create jobs at the margins and improve mental health," Yang tweeted Monday.
In the video, Ardern briefly floated the idea of a four-day workweek, though she said, "Ultimately, that really sits between employers and employees.".
Advocates of the plan, including Yang, say such a system could lead to job creation and happier workers.
Perpetual Garden's employees worked four eight-hour days rather than five at their usual salary on a trial run lasting eight weeks.
In addition to a four-day workweek, Yang has also called for a European-style mandatory minimum employee leave policy. »
