    I work 4 days a week, 7 1/2 hour with 10 minute break inside every hour. I think thats more than enough.

    Those who want to can under special arrangements.. Those who need to is the problem, since those are increasigly becoming a majority in the UK for example.. In places like the UK the US, Norway and other countries people need to work more than 44 hours to survive, thats a shame when the majority in France manages fine on 35 hours.

    I guess some fool could argue that by limiting the number of hours an individual could work per week would lead to employers to hire more people. I find that doubtful.
    How is it not better to work less than more?

    A person only needs 8 hours of sleep a night. If they want to spend more time doing other things they can find another job.

    More than 48 hours is close to slavery..
    Except for the fact that you're getting paid and can leave if you want to and don't get whipped...yeah...definitely close to slavery.

    But you get more done in YOUR life.. Like family and time for excersise, time for making good dinners instead of buying fastfood, time to work on your house, time to study, time to do other things than work, more time to sleep.

    Nope I am not. Happy about working 4 days a week/30 hours.. I wouldnt have more working hours for anything in the world. My weekend is Friday, Saturday AND Sunday.. Gives me a lot more time to LIVE my own life rather than serve my company.
