Four Day Work Week

Utah goes to 4-day workweek to save energy.

In a yearlong experiment aimed at reducing the state's energy costs and commuters' gasoline expenses, Utah is about to become the first state to switch to a four-day workweek for thousands of government employees.

The environment and common sense seem to have won over stodgy business paradigms. In an increasingly connected world expanding telecommuting options is a good thing for both employee and employer.
