Better for workers, employers & families.

The benefits of productivity gains over past decades have been swallowed up by employers in higher profit margins while workers have maintained standard working hours with minimal wage increases.

A 4-day work week would reduce burnout and encourage a work/life balance which leaves more time for the important stuff – like friends, family, rest and play.

Trials around the world have demonstrated that by shortening working hours while maintaining pay levels, workplaces can keep productivity steady or actually improve it.

The latest Senate inquiry into Work and Care has recommended that the Government undertake a four-day work week trial based on the 100:80:100 model, where employees retain 100% of their salary while reducing their hours to 80% and maintaining 100% productivity.

Add your voice now and call on the Labor Government to implement a four-day work week trial across the country.
