      Shorter Work Week Proposed

      {}

      How would you feel about only working three days a week? One of the world's richest people now says we should *all* be doing it.

      Mexican telecom billionaire Carlos Slim is now recommending a shorter work week. He announced his idea at a business conference in Paraguay.

      But there's a catch. The three-day work week would be offset by longer work hours.

      Slim proposes an 11 hour work day, and a later retirement of age 70 or 75.

      He thinks having four days off would boost productivity and improve quality of life.
