What would it take for the US to go to a 4-day work week?

I'm so tired all the time and the hustle culture isn't doing anyone any good OTHER than the billionaire owners and investors.


Would love to hear your thoughts on what would have to happen for the US to try something like this: https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/01/business/4-day-work-week-uk-trial/index.html

Workers are fed up. More than two years into the pandemic, many have burned out, quit their jobs or are struggling to make ends meet as record inflation takes a huge bite out of their paychecks.

I love the idea of a 4dww. I doubt it will happen in the US. This country was built on slave labor and the 5 day, salaried role is the closest thing you'll get to it outside of indentured servitude in prison. πŸ₯΄
