‘How are they going to pay for it?!’ Sturgeon’s ideas for a four-day work week in Scotland have sparked outrage.
The Scottish government’s plan to trial a four-day working week has been slammed, with taxpayers demanding to know how the experiment will be supported amid worries it will be implemented throughout the country.
The experiment will cost £10 million and is intended to “assist companies in exploring the merits and drawbacks of transitioning to a four-day work week.”
Those who participate in the initiative, which will initially focus on office occupations, will be paid the same even though they will work one day fewer per week.
Campaigners are demanding for a four-day working week to be implemented across Scotland, in all industries.
According to a poll conducted by IPPR Scotland, 80% of Scots believe that working a four-day week with no wage cut will have a “good influence on their welfare.”
A whopping 88 percent would be willing to personally participate in the scam.
IPPR Scotland is advocating that the trial be expanded to include non-office and shift-based jobs.
However, visitors of this page have raised concerns about how the new initiative would be funded.
“How will they pay for it?” one person wondered. It had best not come from the English taxpayers or Westminster!”
“The begging bowl will be out again to pay for it,” someone another remarked, “please Boris, can I have some more?”
“No British company will want to invest in a Scottish business if this happens,” a third cautioned.
“They’ll have to provide the extra day off in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland as well,” says the source. Is it a gimmick to entice more people to vote SNP, or has she [Sturgeon] considered this through?”
“Well, why stop there?” a fourth inquired.
“If a four-day workweek is wonderful, how about three, two, or even one day, or none at all?”
“Then raise their pay to compensate the cost of all that extra time.
“There are just two issues: no one will be working, therefore services such as the NHS and the postal service would be unavailable.
“And where are you going to get the money to pay for all of this because no one is going to pay tax?” The SNP’s craziness.”
Scotland’s deficit increased to £36.3 billion in 2020-21, according to official Scottish government data revealed last month.
This accounts for 22.4 percent of Scottish GDP, compared to 14.2 percent for the rest of the UK.
The findings, according to the Scottish Conservatives, reflect the Union’s “strength and security.”
