Utah turns out the lights on 4-day workweek

In 2008, Utah launched a “4/10” workweek for state workers—10-hour days from Monday through Thursday—in a bid to cut costs and conserve energy. But the state scrapped its grand experiment last month, saying it wasn’t saving as much as expected and residents complained about not getting serv­­ices on Fridays.

While no other states have tried 4/10 workweeks, dozens of cities and many private employers offer some version of compressed workweeks.
