17,000 State workers go green in Utah

I was just listening to our national radio station, CBC ONE, and was inspired to learn that the state of Utah has just gone to four, ten hour days instead of five, 8 hour days to save energy in the state buildings. One day a week, the buildings are closed.

Of course they had to look at employee issues like childcare and public transit to get to work.

Also, how it would effect the public. The public loves it as they can now do their business before and after their regular work day.

The four day week was started as a movement in the 60's as a lifestyle choice, but as usual, the only way things move ahead is when it comes down to saving money corporately.

It is a good move for both reasons and I say Kudos to Utah for taking a lead in this method to save tax payers money by conserving energy.
