The Four Day Work Week is Here
The Shake Shack burger chain is struggling with America’s tight labor market so they’re trying something new: the four-day work week! CEO Randy Garutti says he hopes to entice workers amid the country’s nearly five-decade low in unemployment saying, “Here in Las Vegas, in some of our Shacks, we’re testing a four-day work week. That’s a big thing. Nobody’s really been able to figure that out in the restaurant business.” While it’s just an experiment for now, with a 70% turnover rate for two years straight, the hospitality industry could use new ideas. But Shake Shack isn’t alone: KPMG and Deloitte have been offering four-day weeks with flex hours, allowing workers to put in 40 hours over four days or reduce weekly hours by 20%. But it’s hardly a US standard yet-one survey shows that only 43% of US companies offer such an option.
