The Worldwide Management System


A ten-day work week would encourage full-time-job-sharing-as-the-norm. Productivity would advance because factories, offices and shops would be used every day and no one would be overworked or underemployed. We would all work for 180 days and takes 180 days off in every year. This would encourage all of us to make better use of our leisure time. Most of us may choose to take breaks of five days but some may take ten or fifteen days by arranging with their job-sharer to cover for each other. All employees would be remunerated for the time they actually worked. Sick days would be the responsibility of the employee, not the employer. This makes taxation and national insurance fairer and easier to calculate.


This system would only work properly if an entire community used it. Schools, colleges and universities could be used every day so that their overhead costs were minimised and pupils/students could choose to work either left-days or right-days to coincide with workdays of the breadwinner. Many families and single parents would care for each other’s children. More of the elderly would be cared for at home by extended families. Every hospital, clinic and surgery would provide their medical care and perform operations around-the-clock on every day with no waiting lists. All transport systems would be utilised evenly with much less congestion. More cars, boats, planes and other expensive equipment could be shared.


Most day workers would adjust their working patterns to suit the seasons. Most shift workers would take it in turns to work during days and nights. Most of us could easily go back to working in daylight and this would not only save a great deal of energy but also accidents, stress and strain. Many of us now use flex-time, which allows us to stagger our travel times. This, even more flexible, working pattern could be called: flex-date.
