THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press website and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
Most city of Las Vegas operations would be closed on Fridays under a proposed labor agreement between the city and the Las Vegas City Employees Association. Under the proposal, to be voted on by the union, most city workers would go to a 38-hour, four-day workweek beginning in January. The move is expected to save about $20 million over the next two years.
Do you like the idea of most city offices being closed on Fridays?
