US Moving Toward 32 Hour Work Week

Sharing is Caring!

The Congressional Progressive Caucus is putting its weight behind a measure that could fundamentally alter Americans’ traditional workweek.

Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) said in a statement the nearly 100-member group formally endorsed the “32-Hour Workweek Act,” noting the measure is a move “toward a modern-day business model that prioritizes productivity, fair pay, and an improved quality of life for workers across the country.”

“After a nearly two-year-long pandemic that forced millions of people to explore remote work options, it’s safe to say that we can’t – and shouldn’t – simply go back to normal, because normal wasn’t working,” Takano added.

Takano first introduced the measure in July, which reportedly garnered endorsements from several labor unions. The bill would not eliminate 40-work weeks altogether, but it will require employers to offer employees overtime pay after 32 hours
