Election lawyer Atty. Romulo Macalintal once again brought up his previous proposal in 1997 for the government to impose and four-day work week in order to resolve the traffic problem in Manila.
In Macalintal’s “One Day Day-off on Alternative Scheme” proposal, cities can alternately declare a no-work day per week.
The lawyer insisted that aside from alleviating traffic, this will also help employees in saving money and public transportation drivers may earn double.
The four-day work week is currently being implemented in the Senate, the lawyer sees nothing wrong if the government tries it in other public and private agencies.
