A Queens assemblyman today will call on Gov. Paterson to adopt a four-day work week for most state employees to save money.
The move would save the state $30 million a year on energy and building maintenance and slash emissions from daily commutes, Assemblyman Michael Gianaris said.
"Good budgeting requires outside-the-box innovations," Gianaris said.
His idea is to make all state agencies providing "nonessential services" abandon the standard 9-to-5 weekday schedule.
State workers instead would put in 10-hour days Monday through Thursday.
Put state workers on a four-day week, says Queens politician Gianaris
