Should Developed Countries Reduce The Working Year?
Increasing leisure time frees up total work hours for those without jobs, thereby reducing unemployment.
There are potentially
1.9 million extra jobs
available just from unused vacation days in the US.
The hours freed up are from the least efficient end of the job, therefore the amount of extra work available is much less.
Some of the jobs wont find replacement from existing unemployment pool.
Working hours does not reflect in
reduction of productivity
. Therefore it is not effective to create more jobs.
