    Somali Magazine – Sweden has become the first European country to introduce a 6-hour workday. The new law, which came into effect on November 1, 2023, requires all employers to reduce the working hours of their employees from 8 hours per day to 6 hours per day. The law is the result of a years-long campaign by Swedish trade unions and labour activists.

    Proponents of the 6-hour workday argue that the benefits outweigh the risks. They point to the fact that studies have shown that shorter workdays can lead to increased productivity, reduced stress and burnout, and improved employee health and well-being. They also argue that the 6-hour workday could lead to increased job creation and a more equitable society. The introduction of the 6-hour workday in Sweden is a major development. It is the first time in Europe that a country has adopted such a measure. The success of the 6-hour workday in Sweden could lead to other European countries following suit.
