Jersey City officials have announced that they will give the city’s 3,000 municipal employees the option to switch over to a four-day work week.
Mayor Steven Fulop says that the goal is to stagger shifts so that city offices can stay open longer.
“The five-day work week and eight-hour shifts is antiquated in a 24-hour fast-paced world that we’re in today,” Fulop says. “Having that nine-to-five structure of availability of services in City Hall isn’t the best way to meet demands.”
Fulop says that the switch will also help parents better handle child care.
