We know that wages have remained relatively unchanged since 1978 for most of us. If wages had climbed with corresponding increases in productivity for the past 36 years, then what justification for an involuntary 40+ hour work week? A fair increase in wages would make a 4-Hour workday possible and open all kinds of new possibilities for workers. The wage issue still remains one of the key issues to be resolved.

According to this Sweden is planning to try out a 6 hour workday for some of its public sector employees.
