@kensanata @takeonrules BTW, I take Wednesdays off, not Fridays. I believe Wednesdays are a superior day off, UNLESS you plan on travelling or otherwise doing things that require three free days in a row.
Wednesdays are in the middle of the week, so you never work more than two days in a row. Fewer people take Wednesday off, so fewer people in the streets, mountains, or whatever. And last but not least: Fridays are a lighter, more playful day at work usually, so you don't want to take that off.
@kensanata @hardcorenarrativist the main constraint on reducing hours is the US's health insurance. My employer pays 90% of that ridiculous cost and I must work at least 30 hours. So 4 employees at 30 hours each paid the same is significantly more expensive than 3 employees at 40 hours. So my employer has a significant financial incentive to have everyone at 40 hours (or more)
