Let’s pack our bags and move to Finland now
Just imagine what will happen if we don’t have to come to work for five working day or spend almost 9 hours everyday at the office.Well, We know it sounds almost impossible, but we kid you not!
Apparently, Sanna Marin who became second youngest ministers in Finland has proposed the government to introduce a four day working week, which means that the people at Finland gets to spend less time at work.
The 34 years old newly elected prime minister insisted that she believed people deserve to spend more time with their families and loved ones. The proposal was supported by the Finland’s minister of education, Li Andersson.
“It is important to allow Finnish citizens to work less. It is not a question of governing with a feminine style but offering help and keeping promises to voters”.
However, people on Twitter has mixed reactions about it, take a look:
Finland is looking at a 4-day workweek at 6 hours a day.
Sweden already has 6-hour days. Employees are happier and more productive.
Ditto for Microsoft when it tested a 4-day workweek in Japan.
I’ll say it again: happy employees are good for businesshttps://t.co/DrrdfSiOBl

Finland’s new PM, a 34yo socialist who’s never had a job outside of politics, is to introduce 6hr working days and a four day week. I can’t wait to see how this pans out for her.

According to World Happiness Report, Finland was ranked as the happiest country in the world because of their unique way of life. Denmark came in 2nd, owing to their short working weekends and work life balance. Well, what do you think? We’d say it definitely has pros and cons!
