Denmark -Work less and longer -February 17, 2013

According to Professor James Vaupel of the University of Southern Denmark shorter days and longer careers lead to more leisure time and a healthier old age. He says that no-one should work more than 25 hours per week, but that we should keep working until the age of 80. Shorter working weeks would give young people more time to care for their families, exercise and lead healthier lives and part-time work later in life would improve the general health of the elderly.
