Finland to introduce four working days a week


The new Finnish Prime Minister has called for discussion of a flexible working schedule for her country – a four-day-week or six-hour working day.

Sanna Marin, 34, – the second youngest head of government in the world – posted her ideas on Twitter late last year, saying it would allow workers to spend more time with their families.

`Shorter working hours can and should be discussed. A 4-day week or a 6-hour day with a decent wage may be a utopia today, but may be true in the future,’ she said.

The mother-of-one leads a centre-left coalition with four other parties which are all headed by women, three of which are under 35.

 ‘I believe people deserve to spend more time with their families, loved ones, hobbies and other aspects of life, such as culture.

‘This could be the next step for us in working life.’ she said

In Finland currently it is normal to work eight hours per day, five days per week
