There is also the argument which this Iceland experiment seemed to show, is that with even less hours per week worked productivity can go up in the right circumstances, because with less hours people get more done in the time they have, they are more efficient, much of a "work" day is often wasted time, busy time that's not productive and morale sapping, having flexibility and more time off based on the Icelandic experience seems to make people happier and more productive overall
