Working fewer days during the week may sound great, but according to a new study, it probably won't make us any happier.
Researchers studied people living in South Korea over a ten year period. During that time, the government reduced the work week by one day.
The researchers found for both men and women, working fewer hours had no effect on their job or satisfaction with life.
Experts say if you really want to work less or change your hours, flexible work schedules or part time options could be the key.
