BC Green leadership hopeful Sonia Furstenau pitches shorter work week

BC Green Party MLA Sonia Furstenau is proposing conversations with businesses and labour organization to shorten the work week for full-time workers in an attempt to improve work-life balance.

Furstenau introduced her economic plan on Friday as part of her bid to become the leader of BC Greens. So far she is the only declared candidate looking to replace Andrew Weaver.

“We are at a crucial moment in history where change is necessary. With the right strategy, B.C. has the ability to be the most resilient, innovative economy in the world,” Furstenau said.

“We need to create an economic environment that supports smart risk-takers and creative problem solvers. To accomplish this, we must invest in our greatest resource: the people of B.C. Healthy citizens who can afford to live in their communities are the foundation of tomorrow’s resilient, innovative economy.”
