Season 6 Episode 16 | 11m 6s | Video has closed captioning.

The 40-hour, 5-day workweek has been the norm in the United States for almost 100 years. Now imagine if it were replaced with a 32-hour, 4-day workweek--with no cut in pay. Would work-life balance magically descend on the land? Or would people be more stressed than ever? Explore the possibilities and weigh the evidence with Myles. Should the 4-day workweek become the new normal?
