ULTRA-condensed knowledge


Opportunity, KILL THE 5-DAY WORKWEEK, The Atlantic
  • Reducing hours without reducing pay would reignite an essential but long-forgotten moral project: making American life less about work.
      Lesson learned, The successful case of the unconventional employer Buffer
      • The 89 people who work at Buffer, a company that makes social-media management tools, are used to having an unconventional employer. 
      • Everyone’s salary, including the CEO’s, is public. 
      • All employees work remotely; their only office closed down six years ago. 
      • And as a perk, Buffer pays for any books employees want to buy for themselves.
          Lesson learned, Four-day workweek works perfect for Buffer
          • Miraculously—or predictably, if you ask proponents of the four-day workweek—the company seemed to be getting the same amount of work done in less time.

          • People who work a four-day week generally report that they’re healthier, happier, and less crunched for time; their employers report that they’re more efficient and more focused.

              I'm a staff writer at The Atlantic, where I cover the intersection of money, families, and culture—how economics affects our relationships and our daily lives. I also often write about inequality, food, psychology, time use, and, of course, Jeopardy.

              During the pandemic, I've written about young people moving back in with their parents, the COVID-19 baby bust, the economic and racial disparities that would go on to define 2020, the "super-savers" of the pandemic, and the peculiar way time passed in 2020.
