From time to time you hear about the 4 day work week. Proponents of it point to our increased productivity and stress. Detractors point out things such as our wages already being too low and people working two or even three jobs to get by. Some even think it a simple case of lazy people wanting to get by doing less work. As a long time freelancer I have a different view. I have long wanted to write about this, but today I had a bit of an epiphany which inspired me to write about it.
