Oh the Hours You'll Work
September 29, 2016
America’s workforce is going through an experimental phase, where the traditional 40 hour work week is being replaced by virtual offices and flexible schedules. Just a few years ago, workers averaged 47 hours of work a week, much of it taking place outside an office -- but recent news that Amazon is experimenting with a 30 hour work week has sparked new conversations about working smarter, not longer. Today we'll consider the ever-changing world of work, and take your calls on how long you're working each week, and from where: 440-2655 or 800-940-2240.
