How would you like to only work three days a week? One of the world's richest says we all should be doing it!
According to the Financial Times, Mexican telecom billionaire Carlos Slim recommended a shorter work week at a business conference in Paraguay.
However, his idea comes with a catch. The three-day work week would be offset by longer work hours, like perhaps 11 hours a day, and a later retirement age of 70 or 75.
Slim argues having four days off would boost productivity and improve quality of life.
