Norton Rose moots four-day week to save jobs
In general terms this is a good idea - obviously it's great to be able to save jobs by everyone taking a hit. And it's not like they can't afford a bit of a pay cut anyway. The worrying thing is that most firms will be using their redundancies to get rid of some of their dead weight - let's face it all firms are carrying a lot of people who perhaps don't contribute as much as they should. While NR is being very magnanimous by saving everyone's jobs - and will undoubtedly be remembered as such - they could slightly be shooting themselves in the foot by not taking the opportunity to streamline its ranks.
