Proposal Would Give Companies Tax Incentives to Create Four-Day Work Weeks
(Harrisburg, PA) -- Pennsylvania lawmakers have introduced a new bill that would give companies tax incentives to create four-day, 32-hour work weeks for their employees. The bill introduced Friday in the state House would offer eligible companies a state income tax credit to shorten their work weeks. Supporters say studies have shown that a four-day work week reduces employee stress and allows more flexibility with family time. The bill is sponsored by representatives from Dauphin, Chester and Lehigh counties.
