To boost productivity we need to put the hours in

Mark Littlewood appears on the Today Programme

Mark Littlewood discussed labour market productivity and calls for a six day working week on the Today programme.

He argued that the old five day week is dead and buried as we now have a 24/7 culture. We do not necessarily need to work harder but we do need to work smarter and more flexibly. We want to ensure an efficient and productive level of work is put into each hour. We cannot have the belief that we can live a rich life without earning a rich life.
