Ricky Carandang, head of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office, stated that “At this point we are not seriously considering a four-day workweek but if there is something, some new compelling argument for it then we will certainly look into it. Pero sa ngayon, we are not really looking into it.”

The proposal was raised because of the savings the different sectors could incur, both in the company itself, and of the daily expenditures of the employees (transportation, lunch, etc…). But as Carandang said, “while the four-day workweek might have some benefits, it might also disrupt services.”
