Four Days a Week

The Beatles sang about loving you eight days a week, but now we have more and more Americans “working” four days a week.

Probably you’ve noticed that downtowns feel like ghost towns on Fridays. The latest update from the Kastle office occupancy tracker, shows people are going into the office less on Fridays in 2024 than they did in 2023 (even as the other days of the week continue their slow creep back towards pre-lockdown levels).

This chart shows Friday versus Tuesday last week in each city Kastle tracks. Chicago’s 71% of 2019 levels last Tuesday was a new post-pandemic high.
We’re not sure what to make of this new workweek schedule (the American workweek has been gradually shrinking for 150 years). What do you think?

But at least it is making Friday commutes easier.
