Utah Ushers in Four Day Workweek to Save Energy.

Utah? Utah as the harbinger of progressive and outside-the-box thinking? Utah?!?

California might have to hand over its cool credentials.

This is a really intriguing and simple idea that more state governments should look into. An added bonus might be economic stimulation, what with the extra day off and the costs saved on commuting. Happy people spend more money too.

Additionally, I've maintained for a very long time that the 40 hour workweek is inhumane. I see this Utah business is really just four, 10-hour days, but three days off is a step in the right direction. I've been working this way for two years now, and I don't think I can ever go back.

Woo-hoo Utah!
