Finland Prime Minister Sanna Marin wants to implement a flexible working schedule for companies across the country that would involve a four-day-week and six-hour working day. The aim is to provide the Finnish workers with a flexible working week and allow them to spend more time with their families.
Sanna Marin the youngest Prime Minister in the world, believes that short weeks would allow workers in her country to spend more time with their families.
She said, “I believe people deserve to spend more time with their families, loved ones, and other aspects of life, such as culture. This could be the next step for us in working life.”
Li Andersson the Minister of education, who is the leader of the Left Alliance, has quickly supported the idea by saying, “It is vital to permit Finnish citizens to work less.
