Photo: depositphotos.com "It Is Very Probable that the Future after Four-day Working Week" — such statement was made by the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at the International labor conference in Geneva. According to him, technological process leads to reduction not only jobs, but also working hours. Medvedev reminded that 100 years ago Henry Ford decided on reduction of working week from 48 to 40 o'clock and it resulted in increase in productivity. Also the prime minister told about the modern New Zealand company which thanks to a four-day's rest increased productivity by 20%. At the same time additional day off was paid, as well as two others. The question of salary in case of transition to four-day working week remains open. It was said by the Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova. The International Labour Organization recognizes that the wage level and social security as a result of such reform should not worsen, she noted. Business FM asked businessmen, what do they think of the idea to reduce working week per day. The president of Diana group of companies, the member of council of the Moscow office "Support of Russia" Dmitry Nesvetov against. Dmitry Nesvetov the president of Diana group of companies, the member of council of the Moscow office "Support of Russia" "Personally I would be against. Perhaps, for the state and government institutions, maybe, four-day working week is more economically expedient. In the private sector I, at least, do not see it. As for payment, besides the Deputy Prime Minister of the government, most likely, can argue, count and estimate seriously concerning employment in public sector, that is in the budgetary economy which, of course, makes the most part of national economy. But hardly all these calculations can have an impact on the private sector somehow seriously. Usually private sector itself defines, for as to whom it pays". The CEO of State farm of Lenin Pavel Grudinin says that in agriculture such approach is impossible. Pavel Grudinin the CEO of CJSC State Farm of Lenin "As for us, agricultural production, you understand, we do not reckon with time, as well as around the world. Because if it is necessary to harvest, then what four-day working week, there it and seven-day turns out. And the question as far as to raise wages, depends on efficiency of economy. At us what, modernization occurred what we can manage the smaller number of people by production of a certain quantity of products? It seems to me if to think of GDP of the country, then any four-day working week we, unfortunately, cannot afford yet. If to think of any populist statements of officials, then, of course, it is possible to discuss anything. But so far, it seems to me, to those people who offered raising the retirement age, along with it it is strange to speak about four-day working week at least". To Predsedatya
