In 2008 former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman launched the "4 day / 10 hour workweek″ Monday through Thursday for thousands of state employees. The goal was to improve efficiency, reduce overhead costs and conserve energy. This was the first-in-the-nation four-day workweek for state workers. Well, its now over - history.
Lawmakers in Utah have now scratched the experiment. They say that it has not saved as much money as hoped and residents were complaining about not having access to services on Fridays.
