Shorten the workweek to 32 hours!

Shorten the workweek to 32 hours and make our economy equitable! Americans are working more, earning less, and are more stressed. It's time we follow in the footsteps of places like Belgium and Iceland and institute a four-day workweek!

Why is this important?

The Thirty-Two Hour Workweek Act, a bill introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders and allies, would shorten the standard workweek from 40 to 32 hours and increase overtime pay—doubling it for days that last over 12 hours. This bill is an opportunity to end the exploitation of working people and build an economy where the American dream is accessible to everyone.

A 32-hour workweek isn't just about working less; it's about living more. And the evidence is clear—it's good for people and the economy. Studies show businesses flourish and workers' health improves with shorter workweeks. Less time spent working means healthier lives, stronger communities, and an economy where everyone thrives, not just the 1%.

Sign the petition to shorten the workweek to 32 hours and make our economy equitable!
