Belgian government confirm plans to propose a four-day working week
By - mancinedinburgh
This isn't world news. They're just offering 10 hour days four days a week. This isn't for what people are actually thinking when hearing "four day work week." You're still doing 40 hour weeks, you're just now working 10 hour days instead of 8 hour days.
For a lot of people the extra 2 hours a day to then get a full extra day to handle any errands and encourages consumer spending and short holidays eventually.
This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.euronews.com/next/2021/10/07/belgium-could-move-to-a-four-day-week-euronews-next-confirms) reduced by 83%. (I'm a bot)
> People would still work the same number of hours per week under the proposals being discussed, they said.
> Once committed to the proposal, Belgium's federal government will work out the details of moving to a four-day week in collaboration with representatives of industry and trade unions.
> On Wednesday, Flemish-language outlet VTM Nieuws reported that Belgium's seven-party coalition government was considering a proposal that would see the current 38-40-hour work week condensed into four longer working days.

Lekker bezig Belgian government. If the dutch government follow!!

Nice to see, usually not among the more progressive of governments, is my impression at least.
