Once again, why not try ‘four-day work week’?

With monstrous traffic jams expected to hit Metro Manila as a result of the construction of several major road projects, I am reviving my suggestion for a “four-day work week,” cum one additional day-off applied alternatively or on a staggered basis in various areas in Metro Manila on an experimental basis. For instance, offices in Quezon City, Las Piñas and Manila will have no work on Mondays; Pasay, Taguig and Caloocan on Tuesdays; Mandaluyong, Muntinlupa and Parañaque on Wednesdays; San Juan, Pasig and Makati on Thursdays. The combination of the cities or areas in the alternating arrangement of the additional day-off will depend on population or traffic conditions, as determined and recommended by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority.
