NY Daily News – Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim says he has a way to improve people’s quality of life: work only three days a week.

The 74-year-old telecoms tycoon said during a press conference in Paraguay that it was time for a “radical overhaul” in workers’ lives — but one that would also push back the age of retirement, the Financial Times reported.

“People are going to have to work more years, until they are 70 or 75, and just work three days a week — perhaps 11 hours a day,” Slim, the CEO of Telmex, said during the conference.

Thank you Carlos Slim! I’ve been saying this for years but nobody listens to the broke mogul who is searching his couch cushions for gas money.

The five day work week is horseshit. If people worked 3 days a week for 11 hours I guarantee productivity would be higher. You know why? People would bring their A game. If a baseball team pitched their ace every game he would be a beaten down, injured, anti-depressant popping, shitty performer like the rest of us. Humans need time to rest. Mind, body, and soul. It’s a fact of nature. Let’s not fight it, let’s embrace it!

Can you fuckin imagine?
“Hey I’m working Monday-Wednesday this week then I have four days to pursue whatever the fuck I please.” You would literally have the time to vacation every week and actually enjoy this planet. What a beautiful notion.

We must listen to Mr. Slim here. To ignore this would be like listening to an 8 year old teach you about football instead of Tom Brady. Get me the fuck out of the office and get me to the lake house.


happy people
