Toward a 30 Hour Work Week

program date: 
Mon, 03/24/2014
Joe Clement and Anna Coote talk about an article she wrote for the NYTimes advocating a reduction of the work week to 30 hours*. They consider not just the reduction of the work-week, but different ways of appreciating our limited time. The fundamental issue is that the more of our time that we put toward paid work, the less of it we have to take care of ourselves and our communities; the less of it we have to stay informed; the less of it we have to take our time in ways that reduce our impact on the environment. Anna says that part-time should be the new full-time, and we can raise wages to make it happen. 14:39 minutes (13.41 MB)
