This report sets out arguments for a much shorter working week. It proposes a radical change in what is considered normal – down from 40 hours or more, to 21 hours. While people can choose to work longer or shorter hours, it argues that 21 hours a week – or its equivalent spread across the calendar year – should become the standard that is generally expected by government, employers, trade unions, employees, and everyone else.
