8 provinces have already joined in the group to have 2.5 days for weekend, 5 of whom have their own detail rules now. Hearing the news, people, especially staff who are working in the office of public institution, support it and hope the day to carry it out coming soon.

       People have been talking about it since last August after the proposal suggested by the office of the central government. Staff working in the public institution is the main part to enjoy it. Thinking it one of the ways to boom the economy of tourism, some of the provinces take measures to respond it. Some of them are still worried about the problems it might cause.

       The period of a weekend from one day to two days started from 1995 in China. 21 years has passed. Now it will be 2.5 days. It is really good for ordinary people. I hope all workers can enjoy this bonus, not only staff working in public institution.

       What is happiness? If a person always works from morning till night, is he happy? If a person always works all the day to earn little money just for a hard life, is it a life worthy? Looking at the people around, you’ll see that most of them are weighed down with something, working for a long time in the day time or at night, or doing small business from morning till late at night. So what mainly we need for a good life includes both money and a good relaxation. 2.5 days weekend is helpful.

       2.5 days weekend is good for us all. Do you think so?

Work less hours you should get less money, simple.

As China has more and more people with no job is now the right time to look go work less?

Working hours is the same 40 hours a week, and salary has no change.

Yes but in that less time they do less work so more workers are needed and who pays for those extra workers?

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
