Who doesn’t want a long weekend every weekend? B.C.'s premier has announced that a four day work week in B.C. is not off the table. This announcement was made during a question and answer period on Wednesday, June 3, while updating the public on the current COVID-19 situation.\nThere is literally nothing better than a three day weekend. Not only do you get to have an extra day of fun, but your work week is shortened to just four days.\nOne day soon, the ability to have a four day work week could become a reality in B.C. and Premier John Horgan says the concept isn’t “off the table” entirely.\nDuring a COVID-19 update on Wednesday, June 3, Horgan was asked a question regarding the possibility of implementing a shorter work week.\nReferencing a report released by the Fraser Institute, the reporter mentioned a part that said we could enjoy a four day work week but not for a decade or so.\nHorgan answered the question by saying that he rarely reads the Fraser Institute report but he is still intrigued by the idea of having a long weekend.\n“It’s a bit into the future,” said Horgan.\n“I don’t want to discourage the Fraser Institute or anyone else from bringing forward good ideas.”\nThe premier noted that one of the advantages of coming out of a pandemic is that nothing should be off the table — not even this.\nThe official noted that he would like to hear from anyone who has ideas moving forward.\n“We need new ideas, good ideas, and we should be unafraid to have those discussions,” said the provincial official.\nThe report reads that by 2023, Canadians could “enjoy higher real average annual compensation while working only 4 days per week.”\nWhile this may not happen anytime soon, it's open for discussion.
