Finland’s 34-year-old PM proposes 4-day working week and 6-hour working day

Finland’s new Prime Minister has called for the introduction of a flexible working schedule in the country that would involve a four-day-week and six-hour working day. Sanna Marin, 34, – who is the second youngest head of government in the world – said it would allow workers to spend more time with their families. The mother-of-one leads a centre-left coalition with four other parties which are all headed by women, three of which are under 35. While in office in that position, Marin advocated for shorter work weeks to improve employee rapport and productivity. In Finland currently it is normal to work eight hours per day, five days per week.
