A recent poll conducted by www.recruiter.co.uk suggested that when employers were faced with a choice on the future of their job most employees would rather cut their hours than loose their job all together. The online web poll also suggested that 6% would rather take a pay cut and 7% will accept a sabbatical.
The BBC have today reported that Jaguar Land Rover are to vote on a four day week and a pay freeze for one year in the aim of stopping compulsory job losses for the next two years. If results from this latest web poll are anything to go by it could indicate which way Jaguar Land Rover will vote. The decision of a leading multi national company cutting working hours in order to save jobs could lead to other employers following suit impacting on standard working hours during the current recession.
