Wonder what President Biden has to say about this?
In a move that is proving to be very controversial, far-left Democrats are now pushing to eliminate an entire work day. They are essentially asking to create a four-day work week and believe it will be the only solution to end The Great Resignation crisis.
The Great Resignation crisis is a new issue where Americans are basically quitting lower paying jobs at the drop of a hat because they simply do not want to work hard at dead end jobs.
According to Daily Mail, the new legislation is being spearheaded by Democrat Rep. Mark Takano and aims to shorten the US work week from 40 hours to 32 hours, “by lowering the maximum threshold for overtime pay to kick in for non-exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act.“
Along with Takano, Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.,, and Chuy García, D-Ill., have also co-sponsored the new legislation as well.
“After a nearly two-year-long pandemic that forced millions of people to explore remote work options, it’s safe to say that we can’t – and shouldn’t – simply go back to normal, because normal wasn’t working,” Takano stated.
He further noted, “People were spending more time at work, less time with loved ones, their health and well-being was worsening, and all the while, their pay has remained stagnant.”
