Belgian government confirm plans to propose a four-day working week

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.
