Progress Means Reduced Working Hours
by Berhard Schutz and Wolfgang Katzian, October 2015
More and more people use the free time option and decide for more freedom instead of higher negotiated salaries. Shorter hours can lead to economic growth, higher productivity, greater output, more time sovereignty and better long-term health of workers.
Closing one’s eyes to these arguments and only thinking of short-term profit is hostile to the future and not only hostile to the economy. That would truly be “retro” thinking.
