Hi all,

France introduced the 35 hour working week. Germany has had it for some time.
The average worker at Volkswagen works 28.8 hours each week. These economies
are more productive in Gross Domestic Product GDP per head than the USA (I
read it in an article in the Guardian so I can't actually back it up).

Now, this could be due to many factors but I prefer to believe that, in our
knowledge based economies, shorter hours do give better productivity. Now,
obviously there is a limit or base line below which this doesn't work but 35
hours appears to be above that (as does 28.8 hours for VW).
