How the American worker could take back their agency was discussed on Reddit under discussion about the Dropped Day Plan, a proposal for Americans to come together and demand a four-day workweek – by not showing up five days a week.
It works – as a concept. But as more than one Redditor put it, “If people cannot afford to live off their current wages, how can they afford to live off 20% less? How does one nicely ask to work only four days?”
Suddenly two vastly diverse groups of workers existed: the over-employed and the overworked. A new user on Reddit posted to r/Overemployed, “I currently work full time in healthcare. I have too much free time and would like nothing else than a second job. Someone recommended I try you guys. Any advice?”
