Medvedev: Ministry of Labor should form a position on 4-day work week
The Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation should assess the impact of the 4-day working week on economic development and the social sphere. This order was given to the department by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. The possibility of introducing such a reduction is associated with technological progress.
As reported "News", By September 30, the Ministry of Labor should form its position on the reduction of the working week. It is necessary to take into account the opinion of members of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia (FNPR) and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs. Now the law sets only the maximum threshold for working time - no more than 40 hours per week. What exactly is planned to be reduced - days or hours is still unknown.
The majority of the working-age population spoke out against cuts for fear of losing money. Representatives of the Social Development Fund spoke about the need to maintain the level of salaries. According to them, more than in Russia they work only in Mexico and South Korea. But in Germany, citizens work on 62 thousand hours a year less than in our country. Moreover, the Russian medical community is already opposed innovations, claiming that it will lead to more frequent cases of obesity and cardiovascular disease.
