Scotland plans to launch a trial four-day workweek.

The monies will be used to experiment with the abbreviated workweek.

The government points to a recent poll in Scotland that showed 80% of the people responding to the idea were highly positive of the initiative.

Unilever, a British multinational consumer goods company, headquartered in London, previously embarked upon a test of the four-day workweek.

Scotland pointed to Iceland and it's strong results as a big reason for taking a chance with the four-day workweek.

Between 2015-2019, Iceland conducted test cases of a 35-36 hours workweek without any calls for a commensurate cut in pay.

Recently, Democratic Congressman Mark Takano introduced legislation that would reduce the standard workweek from 40 hours to 32 hours. »
