    Well this would technically be working overtime (in california at least) so I think I would get paid more. And I would have three days off the week. Sounds good to me.

      Yeah, anything past 8 hours in a day is overtime. Also a Cali res.

      Didn't say what job, 10 hours isn't much more than 8 hours, and an extra day off. Completely agree.

      It wouldn't be counted as overtime as this is the period in which you have to work, no exceptions

      The overtime comment only applies if you get paid hourly instead of salary. If you get paid hourly your job probably sucks anyways haha

      A normal working day is 9 hours a day 5 days a week so I'm not sure what the big deal is... I would rather work five days a week as opposed to four (:

      I mentioned this question to my dad and he said that that would save 20% of your car fuel and prevent some pollution too. Since more people choose this choice that is the exact amount of work time as the other choice, all the businesses out there really should change the work time to 10 hrs a day, 4 days a week.

      I worked 4-10s in Cali a few years ago and it was explained that California has a set of special cases for workdays over 8 hrs but under 40 hrs a week.

      What do you count as a "real" job. I work 6:30-15:24 at volvos assembly line and that's 8h 14min with the 40min lunchbreak. My job is real enough to me at least.

      Guys, by that he means that in his country, even with Americas laws regarding work time, some people are forced to work 5 days 10 hours. For example, my mom works 5 days 8-12 hours which is really cruel.

    There both 40 hours so i wouldn't get overtime for either one. I usually work 10 hours a day and after eight hours burning the building down seems so tempting.

      Well I play guitar in a band so I rather do something I love 10 hours a day and do it less days because touring can be exhausting. So I would rather have breaks and more fun

      That Guy

      5 years ago

      Yes but you won't have to wake up and get ready an extra day...also if you worked for 8 hours, you'd want to burn the building down at the sixth hour, basic psychology

    The 2 extra hours from the 4 days = 8 hours, so that just means an extra day of work. I'd rather have it be more spread out.

    they're both the same hours. it should be 50/50. you'll get an extra day off to spend time with yourself and others, yet have the same hours as someone working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, but they'll have only the weekends off. logistics

    no matter what your still getting 40 hours of work done, however, your overworking yourself by doing all the work nearly at once, i suggest spreading out the time, to give yourself time to relax and not have to overwork yourself and make yourself feel stressed.

    With the one with the working for 10 hours and 4 days a week or 8 hours and 5 days a week it is exactly the same you still work 40 hours a week no matter what so really there is no difference besides the different amount of days you work! Still fun anyway! ;)
