    Is A Four-Day Work Week Right for You?

    There May Be Hidden Costs Involved in a Shorter Work Week

    Gas and energy costs have caused some employers to move to a four-day work week to save money. For everyone who doesn't work for such an organization, one of the hottest topics in the nation -- gas prices -- could be the peg needed to convince the boss to implement a flexible work arrangement.

    Employers are switching to a four-day work week to help employees save money.

    If you've previously been intimidated about approaching your boss about flexibility because your company isn't receptive to the whole notion of it, or if you've been flat-out turned down on your proposals for an accommodation, now might be a good time to speak up.
