The Rearranged Workweek of Four Days, Forty Hours with a Treatment of Military Applications.
Foster, William J.
The primary purpose of the study was to develop a military reference on the rearranged workweek, especially the four-day, forty-hour arrangement. In the research an extensive review of pertinent literature was accomplished to provide the necessary background to properly evaluate the military four-day, forty-hour workweek experience at McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey. The test program included five percent of the 438th Military Airlift Wing personnel. Civilians were personally excluded from participating in the test program because of Federal overtime laws, although some civil service managers supervised participating military personnel. Interviews were conducted with managerial personnel involved in the limited test program, which lasted from July to November, 1971. (Author)
