Would you take a pay cut if it meant you could have a shorter work week?

They already don't pay me enough, so I don't think so. If this were a financial possibility for me, I would definitely do it, though. I miss having the free daylight time that I had in school.

I think shorter weeks would make people lazier.

^^ How so, Guerrilla? I don't have much energy left to do things when I'm done with the work week, so I'm significantly less productive now (outside of work) than I was a year ago. Plus, if socialist ideals were to actually work, which is something I think you argue a lot for, we would have to have a shorter work week. In France it's only 34 hours, I believe. Thus socialism would make people lazier... Just throwing the idea out.

"Plus, if socialist ideals were to actually work, which is something I think you argue a lot for, we would have to have a shorter work week." How do you figure?

Because then it would be the government's obligation to provide employment for everyone. You can see it in France, with its democratic socialist approach toward labor; you can see it in China even better. With large labor pools, there is not enough work to go around without slashing hours for some and creating pointless jobs for others. Example from China: Tree trunks need to be treated with pesticides, which are painted onto the trunks. One work crew comes through and marks the trees that need to be painted. A second crew comes through and actually paints on the pesticides. Why can't the first crew do both tasks, which would double productivity? Because that second crew would be jobless...

No the only way I'd take a pay cut is if I made more money.Which makes no sense,but whatever

ok how big of a pay cut and how much of ashorter week?
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/8/03 - 7:06:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, my week would be as long. I work at home.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 6/28/03 - 9:34:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no, I cant afford a pay cut
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/18/03 - 3:03:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not at the moment as I couldn't afford it. Maybe in a few months time.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 4:05:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
No i cant afford a pay cut but then again maybe a shorter working week would mean more time to make money in a way that i enjoy???
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 6:53:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
no i love my job and my pay
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 6:53:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
They can give me more hours for a pay hike.

18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 6:57:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. Then I'd just have more time to spend less money.

I'm pretty sure my company would go for a deal like that, but I need every penny I make.
