The expert commented on the proposal to shorten the working week
Anna Zyryanova, a lecturer at the Institute of Business Administration and Business Administration (IBA) of the RANEPA, commented on the proposal of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia (FNPR) to transfer Russians to a four-day working week in an interview with RT.
It is noted that the transition should be carried out with the same wage.
Zyryanova emphasized that if there is a proportional increase in labor productivity, then this is a good measure.
“This is not about intellectual workers, where the working day is poorly standardized, but about those professions and those jobs where you can really set a specific length of the working day: for example, a factory worker. If technology allows increasing the number of units of output per hour, then this solution is effective, ”she explained.
The expert added that such things do not happen immediately and require quite serious investments, including, as the specialist noted, retraining of people and modernization of production.
Earlier, the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia (FNPR) proposed transferring the Russians to a four-day working week.
According to Elena Kosakovskaya, deputy head of the department of social and labor relations and social partnership of the apparatus of the FNPR, all the European countries that are in the top ten in terms of the shortest working hours are at a high level of socio-economic development.
