Bernie Sanders & UAW demand 4 day work week

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

This country needs to seriously consider cutting back the hours that people have to labor at their job, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders told CNN on Sunday, suggesting the 40-hour workweek is at least partly to blame for Americans’ declining life expectancy.

A 32-hour, four-day workweek — for the same pay — is a key demand of the United Auto Workers, whose members went on strike last week after talks with Ford, GM, and Stellantis failed to deliver a new contract. The demand, in part, reflects concerns that the electrification of the auto industry, paired with emerging artificial intelligence technologies, will significantly reduce the amount of human labor required to assemble a new vehicle.

Sanders, asked whether he thought the UAW’s position was simply a bargaining ploy, said he thinks it’s actually worth having a conversation about.
