Dumb Arseholes of the Week Award

I feel that The New Economics Foundation deserves an award for being completely dumb (link in title).

They argue that the working week should be reduced to 21 hours.

They claim it would reduce unemployment. I doubt it. Why would an employer want two employees working 21 hours each when one employee could work 40 hours?

All I can see is a massive reduction in productivity, and GDP, just at the time when the country needs to be more productive to attracy more investment.

They also claim it would be good for the planet. Hmm.

Completely fucking stupid idea.
