A new bill proposed by California assemblywoman Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens) would mandate a four-day work week – 32 hours max – for companies with more than 500 employees.
Under AB-2932, the new work week would be 8 hours per day, 4 days a week and companies would have to pay overtime for employees who work more than 32 hours a week.
Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia argued that people will be more productive and will have a better work-life balance with a four-day work week.
Critics of the bill say it would cost businesses a lot of money and stunt job growth.
