As a Tech Writer, many of us know that our work affords us some
"flexibility" in the normal work routine:
* Tele-work
* Flex Schedules (Four 10 hour shifts/wk, etc.)
* and so on...

I pose a question to the group...

On Friday, the Governor of Utah will announce that ALL State offices
will switch to a 4 day work week (10 hour shifts) and close on Friday.
This is to meet the needs of State workers and reduce strain on the
Commute (which is a serious issue in this State).

Here's the question:

Would you go to work for a company that refused to budge (with no
proper explanation or reason given) or offer any flexibility in work
schedules? Even with such a precedence being set on a governmental

Would influence your decision if you were looking for a job?
Would it be incentive to seek out another job with more flexibility?

Just curious...
