Four-Day Work Week Proposed To Certain State Employees

The Kentucky Secretary of State's office is offering its employees a four-day work week.

A spokesman says the plan is designed to give employees a relief from high gas prices.

Officials say employees who participate will still work the same number of hours, just longer on the four days.

The move is a pilot project the office will test for two weeks.

    This is not new information. I have worked in state goverment for 10 years now and it's always been this way. I have worked this same schedule for years now. This has always been offered in the office that I work in. I take my day off on Monday's and I love it. This means that I don't have to take off of work for Dr. appts or whatever I need to do. I hardly ever take off a day of work.

    They will work extra hours those 4 days so they still put in the full week and get paid for it. Just means they have to drive to work 4 days instead of 5. Pretty simple.

    4 day work week is great but who really wants to work extra hours each day when you really don't have the extra time to make up those hours. I have games/practices for the kids and other errands to run and not counting getting home late as it is trying to get all the chores done. I persoanlly don;t see why they just can't give us the extra day without having to try and make it up.
