This idea came to me from a graphic designer, but what if there was a law that capped the number of days a worker could work during the week at 4. To fill the 5th day companies would hopefully hire an additional worker. To ensure each additional worker got sufficient hours to support herself/himself there could be a law that set a floor of 3-days minimum that a worker must work during the week. Ideally, companies would then stay open 7-days/week. An increase in minimum wages could be implemented to offset lost hours, or deflation in prices from lower wages could compensate for lost hours.
