Poll: Americans would prefer a four-day, ten-hours-per-day workweek

In a poll of more than 23,000 people, about two-thirds (67%) say that if they were working full-time and their pay would be unchanged, they would prefer to have a four-day workweek with 10-hour days. (Note: the Iceland trials did not involve employees working longer hours over a shorter number of days, but rather reducing their schedules from 40 hours a week to 35-36 hours a week).

One in five (21%) Americans would prefer to stick to the standard five-day, 8-hour workweek.

Among those who are currently working full-time jobs, 72% say they would prefer a four-day workweek while 22% would opt for a five-day schedule.
