Governor McDonnell proposes 4 day work week for state employees
By Kyle Maichle
The idea of a shorter work week won approval of the Governor's Commission on Reform and Restructuring by an unanimous vote. Virginia would become the second state in the nation to implement a four day work-week for state employees. Utah was the first state in the nation to adopt a four day work-week.
The Virginia Department of Planning and Budget estimates that the plan would save Virginia over $3 million dollars. The only agency that will exempted from the four-day work week plan is the Department of Motor Vehicles. The plan would apply to 25 state agencies.
