What about a three day weekend?!
What do you like about Fridays? How do you feel the evening before the weekend is over? Well... what do you think of the idea of a three-day weekend?
Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has decreed a four-day working week for Civil Servants, making Friday a day of rest to allow residents in the small West African state more time for prayer and agriculture.
The shorter working week will take effect from February 1.
The new public sector working times in Gambia, a sliver of land stretching inland from the West African coast along the river Gambia, will be Mondays to Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
