Three days off, four days work. What has been tested in Great Britain in a pilot project since June is also being desired by more and more people in this country. According to a survey by Statista, every second Austrian would welcome a legally anchored option to choose a 4-day week.

In Austria, too, some companies have tested the reduced working time model over the summer months. The KURIER asked how the tests went – and who introduced the 4-day week.
