    I would love a four day working week but only if I am paid for a 5 day week, and therein lays the dilemma. For employers to offer this reduction, hours or days, the pay would be a bone of contention as they're seeing a reduction in time worked. If this then translates to less money in the workers pocket it won't work. I'd rather stick with 5 day weeks and be paid a decent wage than work 4 days and get less money. The fact that I work in public service and haven't had a pay rise in years means that I already feel like i'm being paid less for more!
