Take Back Your Time

The TAKE BACK YOUR TIME March 2008 newsletter is now on the TBYT web site at

From their web site:

I think you’ll find a lot of interesting material in newest issue. Good news on Family Leave from New Jersey. A thoughtful article on the impact of Paid Family Leave on Children’s Health in different countries by our new board member Anmarie Widener. A review of an important new book, THE LEISURE ECONOMY by Linda Nazareth. A letter from newsletter editor Kelley Smith on how this year’s flu season shows we need paid sick leave. A fine essay on “Natural Time,” by Matt Zeufle.

You’ll also find an update on our campaign for a paid vacation bill, including an invitation to help plan and build a National VACATION MATTTERS Summit for the spring of 2009.

NOTE: People for a Shorter Workweek supports Take Back Your Time Day.

Gas Prices and Shorter Workweek

With gas prices reaching an all-time high, companies should consider allowing people to work a shorter workweek (4-days, 32 hours). Send me your comments about gas prices and the shorter workweek.
