Sweden and possibly Australia are to experiment with this for a year. Source article here: http://www.news.com.au/finance/work/as-the-swedish-city-of-gothenburg-trials-a-sixhour-working-day-we-ask-can-it-work-in-australia/story-fnkgbb6w-1226880965695 Aside from this being much less straining for all of us as workers, there may be benefits to employers as well and even the economy at large as this could mean more job openings to get money circulating more. Here are some points for employers to consider. And those would be the basic points this source is trying to get across. More jobs for the economy in an increasingly automated economy, more productivity and efficiency from workers and less sick days resulting from greater employee health. Definitely something to keep an eye on because the success or failure of this experiment will have some profound implications that could change the lives of billions of people both in this generation and beyond.
