7/2/08: Working a 4-Day Week
Salt Lake City, UT – There aren't a lot of progressive ideas coming out of Utah government these days, but Governor Jon Huntsman is implementing a ground-breaking idea to save energy - a four-day work week. Though other states have offered it to their employees, Utah is the first to make it mandatory for some. Wednesday on RadioWest, we'll talk about the plan and about the impact of the 4-day model on employees, customers and the bottom line.
