This is apparently the new trend.  Some companies are switching from a 5 day work week to a 4 day work week where you would work 10 hour days instead of the 8 you normally would work.

Would you rather do that?  To me it depends on the job you have.  If it's something where you don't mind being there for 10 hours, maybe that's the way to go.  If you basically are watching the clock until it's quitting time, this might not be the way to go for you.

Many say the trend has boosted morale in the workplace.

“People like having Friday off and I find myself that by the time Saturday rolls around all the stuff I wanted to get done is already done on Friday and you’ve really got more of your weekend to enjoy,” Bernie Veldman, the CEO of Surestep/Transcend.

And how about this little perk....

Other trends gaining popularity include the ability to work from home and (the always popular) unlimited vacation time!

I'm on board with that last one for sure!
