'Just the News' Founder John Solomon on OSHA's Unconstitutional Overreach

"We always resort to John Solomon to brighten our day. Why? Because he's a truth teller the founder of Justin used dot com investigative reporter extraordinaire. We're going to talk about two big issues today, John welcome. Let me just play a cut that goes straight to the first story from your website. This is of course the current chief of staff of the Biden administration. Ron klain cut 6. I'm quite confident that when this finally gets fully adjudicated, not just a temporary order. Right. The validity of this requirement will be upheld. It's common sense chuck. If osha can tell people to wear hard hat on the job, be careful on chemicals, it can put in place these simple measures to keep our workers safe. This little problem that John, the hard hat is for when you're working and you get to take it off when you go home and it's not injected into your body. We have the piece we're posting right now on our Facebook and Twitter pages from Justin used dot com. Have we ever seen anything of the light 27 states including including three run by Democrat governors have brought suits against the Biden osha regulation? Is this going to stand once your expectation? You know it's rare to see 27 states in four days. I mean, it's hard to remember. It was only last Thursday that osha promulgated this regulation and already more than half the states in America have rushed to sue. You have a major lawsuit by one of the largest business lobbies in American job creators network. All of them are making the same argument, which is this is an unconstitutional overreach by osha. Ocean is supposed to govern what happens at the workplace, not what happens in your home or with your doctor with other things. And so the first a court to take a look at this, the 5th circuit of appeals, Court of Appeals in Texas, said there was such grave constitutional issues here. It ordered an injunction Sunday, the job creators network asked the a circuit to make that injunction nationwide, freeze it nationwide. That's a clue that these courts see the same issues as

"I don't know if you need to go that far. I know with Lenovo, one of the things that surprised me was I think was just how productive we remained. It's really about getting the task done, getting the work done. And as long as that continues, whether it's a home or in the office, I think, you know, people will trust their employees to get their stuff done. Yeah, and that's the thing. If you can't trust your employees, get things done, they probably shouldn't be on your team. And I think that now more than ever, we really have to shift our focus to that working is not about time, but it's about what you get done. The whole concept of results oriented work. Yeah, I don't think there's any question about that. I think of an example, you know, my daughter goes to a very we live in a small town, south of Raleigh. And there's a small dance studio. You know, it's run by a dance instructor that I think she has maybe 60 maybe 70 students at the most. And then when the pandemic hit, you know, the kids couldn't go into practice dance. So what we see to do, and basically, that's where everybody, you know, my daughter would take her laptop out to the garage and turn on her camera and they had access I think they were using teams. Microsoft Teams. And they would have their class virtually. Which was I thought was an amazing solution. Not as good as being altogether. But at the same time, the teacher could watch their steps, the cameras were kind of on their feet. This was a clog in class, so they watched their feet. And gave the feedback. Yeah, I mean, it's certainly opens it up to if you can't make it to a physical location that you can still do it online. My wife teaches yoga. I mean, she's still doing it online on person. Not as good, but at least it's a substitute for not doing anything at all. Yeah, absolutely..

"fourth day" Discussed on The Small Business Radio Show

"If you're a photographer and you are looking for brands to shoot or influencers, you can search for them that way. So any sort of collaboration, any sort of way that you can see your business grow like minded can help with that. Now it's interesting because there's always been, I guess influencers and big time advertising campaigns. You'd have a famous actor, say, hey, you should buy home number 9. Because I use it. This is just really on a micro and targeted basis, right? Exactly. It's for people who are just starting out. And I feel like influencer marketing and influencers in general just come across this chicken and egg situation. They want to grow their brand. They want to grow their platform, but no brands will work with them because they don't have enough followers, but you're not going to get any followers and lets you start building your brand. So brands are in the same situation where they have a product they want their name out there, but influencers don't want to work with small brands. So it's really for these nano and micro influencers. These small businesses to connect and collab excuse me, connecting collaborate and help each other build. And there's nothing like this out there. So it's a small brand works on your platform with a influencer. What kind of what do they expect to pay in balin? What should they hope to be able to result do they expect to receive? So the platform is going to be $25 a month to use. And they get full access to the website. The search function, the message board. And from there, you can kind of pay as much as you want or as little as you want. You can offer free products. You can accept free products. You can charge upwards of 105 $100,000 for a post. So just all depends on the influencer and the brand and what they're able to do. So what kind of results have people been able to get? Again, I'm just trying to think someone says, all right, I want to do some influencer marketer. My budget is $500. I'm going to sponsor a 105 $100 post. What can they expect? What kind of results can they expect to achieve from that? Is it traffic to their website? Is it sales? How do you set.

Editor Joel Berry Describes His Comedy Influences

"Folks I am talking to Joel berry not to be confused with crunch berry or really any berry, Joel berry you're your own man, and you grew that beard of your own volition. Did you grunt it out in hopes of landing a gig with the Babylon bee? Because I know that if they see an unbearded youth walk in, they just think like he's probably not reforms enough for us, right? Yeah. Well, I was hired and I started reading spurgeon and like the next morning, it just was incredible. I'm going a beard virtually all the time. But I just shave it off before anybody notices. But I want you to know that it's there. You know, it's happening, basically. It's happening as much as your beard is happening. It's growing about the same rate. See that sometimes. I think you should the next few years. If you take certain vitamins, you could like grunt it out in four days. It's unbelievable. Okay, so here's my question for you. When you were growing up, like ten minutes ago, who were your heroes? Who were your comedy heroes? Is there anything that influenced you or what's your comedy thing? Well, you know it came a little bit later in life. I'll be honest. I was homeschooled very sheltered. You know, I grew up in the world where you know you don't watch The Simpsons, you know, you stay away from The Simpsons. So I had to kind of play catch up later on. But I want to know what level are we talking? It's one thing to avoid The Simpsons. It's another thing to turn your own butter. Like where were you on that spectrum? You were maybe a step above churning our own butter. We were pretty long Jean skirts on the ladies. Oh yes. And like a whole Holly hobby kind of aesthetic? Yeah. So those early Apple on B jokes where we would talk about the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, introducing its first baptist supermodel in the long Jean skirt. Those jokes were also too good. It's too good. So yeah, so what did so when did you I mean, was it reading the onion? What was it? What were you reading that made you think I want to do this? Unless it was the B itself. Yeah, it was the B itself, you know? I think the bee was originally inspired by what the onion did. Our founder Adam Ford, he read an onion headline shortly after the Alberta fell decision when they redefine the meaning of marriage at the Supreme Court. And it was something to the effect of forced Supreme Court Justices suddenly realized that they will be the villains in an upcoming Oscar winning movie. You know? And that's a pretty good headline, right? Yeah, it's very good. And I think Adam at that point, he read that. And even though he vehemently disagreed with the point of view of the onion, he had to respect the joke. Why aren't we doing

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. We all know the old adage. It's not the heat, it's the humidity. Well, you can take that with a grain of salt. We were without air conditioning for about the last four days. Finally got it fixed, but since we rent, we had to wait. We had to go through the process with our big rental company because it went out on Friday night. We had to wait. Of course, nobody wanted to work over the weekend, as I was talking to our folks in our tech support system. They were saying they're running into the same problem too with all their vendors. I understand the process, but at the same time, the only thing I was thankful about is it wasn't brutal heat. It wasn't a 100° or 90° out. Yes, it was very rainy, and very humid and very nasty. And while it's not the heat, it's the humidity, it's a little bit of both. I've gotten soft in my old age. I have no fear in admitting that. I don't know to this day how my parents live in Florida and don't use air conditioning all the time. It was only in the 70s here, but because our House is in ventilated properly, it was like a hot box. And we were running in the 80s in the house and we did everything we could to mitigate it. 20 minute fix and we were back up and running and now it's finally cool again. Kind of frustrating, but you got to deal with the things, even if it is the heat and the humidity.

Why Creativity Equals Productivity With Author Joe Sanok

"You have got so much to say about creativity and productivity. Why is it that creativity causes us to be more productive. What's that all about. Yeah i think intuitive we know this and a lot of the science backs it up as well but just think about when you have your best ideas you know when you're stressed out or maxed out. It's when you're taking a shower when you're out for a hike when you're on a long drive and maybe turn off the radio for a while It's when our brains are able to rest when we're not really in that fight flight or freeze and so we know that if we're going to be more creative it doesn't start with having a week. That's maxed out and stressed out and then we have a weekend where we're just recovering that we go right back into it. It's where we start with the slowing down when we start with that that mindfulness and we allow our brains to relax. I and ask those hard questions of. What is this weekend. need From me and from my brain. How do i best myself for this next week. the idea that we work five full days and then for two days we take off. It just doesn't work anymore. And as we look at the research on the forty workweek and about making thursday the new friday we see emerging more and more that countries and businesses that are switching to a four day of work three days off are seeing better productivity and creativity.

This probably a crane or one of the booms which had collapsed then. There was the sound of an explosion and then a fire about five. To seven seconds later there was a massive explosion that destroyed the entire facility. It was one of the largest explosions in history up until that point pilots in the air at the time saw a fireball three miles into the air. The blast was felt in boulder city nevada. Four hundred thirty miles away. There was damaged onto buildings in san francisco forty eight miles away debris landed over two miles away and the plane which witnessed it said it's all white hot debris shooting past it. At an altitude of seven thousand feet. It coastguard fireboat near the pier was thrown six hundred feet or one hundred and eighty meters away where it eventually landed in the water and sank. There were three hundred and twenty men and the peer when the explosion occurred all of them died instantly. Two thirds of the dead. Were african american enlisted men who were working on the dock. In fact this explosion by itself was responsible for fifteen percent of all of the african american deaths in the second world war. I've got a previous episode on the halifax harbour explosion during world war one. The portugual explosion wasn't quite as large. But it wasn't too far away the biggest difference and the reason why the fatalities were lower. Portugal is that there were no civilians on the base. There were two hundred and fifty other injuries and of the men who were killed only fifty one wherever identified an inquiry was launched only four days after the explosion and the ruling was that it was probably the fault of one of the enlisted men. Nothing was mentioned about the poor safety conditions and the lack of training

The youngest victim was sixty nine. The oldest rose monning was ninety-seven all of those who died. Were members of the synagogue's congregation. This was the deadliest attack ever on the jewish community in the united states and took place the time of rising antisemitism as well as increasing levels of hate crimes against other groups including african americans and muslims in the us four days off the shootings the secretary general of the united nations antonio cherish honored the victims. At new york's park east synagogue. He denounced the mass shooting as a horrendous act. And as you just heard noted that antisemitism is the oldest form of hatred to have endured in human history. There's a big jewish population score hall. So is easy for me to stay really close to my jewish roots. I went to jewish preschool. Jewish elementary school.

But it's a little bit more complicated than you're not going to get these kind of really surprising success stories that we've seen If you start in manufacturing facilities that already have people working at really high rates. One last thing i did want to say about some of the other kinds of workplace reduction trials that seen over the years for example in sweden. Some six hour workday experiments. That were done in nursing homes and health care settings where you had. You had a lot of burnout. Among these employees. The candidate better. The employees were less burned out so they had much higher wellbeing but it did require hiring some additional people. And that's what you where you're in a situation where people are already working too hard there. You need a different model. You wanna reduce you want to give them the six hours with the eight hours pay but you're gonna have to hire some additional people and there were some small number of workplaces in iceland where that happened where they where they had to. They weren't able to do everything in the shorter number of hours. They had to increase some hiring. You really same like someone who thinks that unbalances is a good idea. Not necessarily for everyone with the same blanket conditions but in general. Can you say it being taken up in a lasting and widespread way. Oh absolutely i feel like we are going to see a period of fairly rapid work time reduction happening at least in the global north. ocd countries. Why do i say that well. We started in the sort of eighteen seventies with work time reduction. Some countries have maintained a path of work. Time reduction some like my own sort of veered off that.

New Zealand Company to Trial a Four-Day Week

"Right now. A lot of employers are having a hard time finding staff. I'm seeing signs and ads. Promise bonuses for new employees all kinds of perks. Some economists argue that better working conditions could change the game higher wages good benefit packages and how about a shorter workweek for the same pay jets. Lehman has this profile of a new zealand company. That's trying that approach. Few months i've been giving whole question of of how we work quantities. Andrew barnes stood before an assembly of his employees and told them that starting in about a month everyone would work only four days a week instead of five and he'd keep paying everyone their full salary they'd keep all their benefits.

"fourth day" Discussed on Today, Explained

"I'm sure an idea like this would have some opposition. Are people afraid that this will make every american worker. You know one. V less productive for our capitalism. Sure so that's a worry that is natural for people to have and actually this was studied. There was a big study in iceland. Where a whole swath of workers had their hours cut by a few hours each week. I think they did. They did a thirty six hour. Workweek and the studies found that by and large productivity. Either stay the same or actually went up So people were getting more done in fact and then of course there are all these. Other benefits rate. People were happier. They were spending more time with their families. They had better social lives. You know in the study there was like a dad being quoted saying my kids are so excited when it's my half day because they know that we're going to hang out and she's like really sweet that's nice and actually since the studies came out. Iceland decided to enlarge part. Make this permanent so now. Eighty six percent of the population is either already working a shorter workweek or they have a contract that guarantees them that shorter workweek in the future. So this dream is going to be a reality there. Why do they think that people become more productive when they work less. I think there's a couple of things here. One is i mean and if you work in an office i think this will resonate with you or if you used to work in an office before the pandemic i think the resonate which is that. Some of our time at work is wasted. We have a lot of meetings to go to. Some of those meetings could probably be an email. Some of those meetings go on too long. There's also research showing that like after a certain amount of work. We just lose our ability to do work like not completely but we get worse that working so anyone who's just worked a super long week has felt this. You get burnt out. You get tired. you're not as efficient. You make more mistakes so a shorter workweek You know. Avoid some of those problems. Is this just another way for for white collar workers to end up with another benefit though and they'd have one more day off where potentially service industry workers in restaurants or movie theaters or big box stores would wind up with even more work to do tending to all these people. I think that's a real worry. And one thing that was really interesting to me about the iceland. Research is that it wasn't just office workers who were part of the research. It was also like i think law enforcement officers and folks who worked in childcare or also elder care so especially some of these care work jobs. It's not like you're spending that much time in meetings. When you're caring for toddlers i know because they have a toddler. Those are labor intensive jobs. And when you're on your on but they still found ways whether it was maybe the daycare center hires more people you know. Maybe it adjusts our slightly. They still found ways to make. These shorter workweeks work. So i think really the key if we're going to do something like this would be making sure that exactly what you're talking about. It's not just a benefit for white collar workers this is like a real shift across the economy and that it's coupled with making sure that people who have really unpredictable schedules or not enough hours have enough that they actually have enough work or enough benefits. They can live on them and for all the people who think this is just like a pie in the sky idea. I it's worth remembering right that that's so was you. Bi until during the pandemic the former president and the current. One just decided to give people fair sums of money right. Do you think because of that were a little bit closer to ideas like this than we were. Say before the pandey. Yeah i mean. We've seen so many things policy-wise that i thought we'd never see you know whether that's the child tax credit whether it's the stimulus whether it some of the stuff in the american rescue plan I think there's been this acknowledgement of people's basic needs in a way that there really wasn't before and i've just started to see a kind of cultural change. Maybe this is too optimistic but it used to be that whenever you talked about work and people work too much like people would kind of roll their eyes and especially you know in media or if you talked to like white collar professionals everyone would be like of course. We were too much but no. We're never going to do anything about it. That'd be ridiculous. And i just feel like it's different now. I feel like frankly. America's traumatized from the pandemic. Even those who are kind of relatively insulated I think there's a serious epsom needs a change there's a serious onslaught work is broken and for the first time when you say people work too much everyone kind of perks up listens and i'm hoping that that means maybe there's appetite for changing this not just going back to the way it was and north.

"And we're seeing it not just in people who you might think financially. They have a lot of choices. You know lawyers quitting to have a better work life balance but we see it in service workers who aren't making a ton of money. Maybe they don't have a ton of money saved up but they don't wanna be endanger for minimum wage anymore. So i think across the economy. We're kind of seeing something really change.

"Literally or like jewelry and the thing yes money. Yes by check every two weeks. A bank account have a bank account. Okay so it's like there's this sort of idea of like you know maybe the man in the suit going off to the office or maybe the man in the jumpsuit. Going off to the factory but that was never every worker. There's always been lots and lots of workers who weren't going to the office and they weren't going to the factory and those folks never really had access to the kind of quote unquote good job that we think of as kind of formulating the american dream and what happens between then and now then we got this situation where there's fewer and fewer of the good jobs and more and more of the bad jobs manufacturing for example they've really eroded in the. Us service has really exploded. There's lots more service jobs. This was an industry that never had the same kind of norms ray. These weren't good jobs. They didn't have good wages. They didn't have hours all this kind of stuff. Then we have the erosion of unions so workers have less power to bargain for their conditions. And things just kind of get crappier and crappier for lack of a better word. Pensions become less. Common in favor of sort of 401k's and retirement accounts that rely way more on the worker to be putting away money versus somebody. Kinda putting away money for you. The rate of people who have health insurance through their job goes down. Wage growth stagnates. There's lots of actors. We can point to but basically overtime. You're nineteen fifties job. That's kind of providing all your needs it just just becomes less and less common fewer and fewer people have that kind of job and even the people who do have jobs that are providing for all their needs. It feels like those people might be working more now than ever before rates. So the other thing we've seen is that you know white collar work sort of professional work you know those workweeks and those work days of just gotten really long and i think something that we've seen a written about. This elsewhere is just a general worsening of people's schedules over time so there's been sort of a weakening of the overtime rules in the fair labor standards act some more and more people are exempt more and more people are in this category where you actually can be asked to work more than forty hours a week and you don't have to be paid overtime so then you're hours can balloon to whatever your boss feels like. There's also been a rise in what derek thompson at the atlantic calls work. Ism which is this idea that you work should really be the centerpiece of your life and your identity. It should be really important. You should really give be giving all of yourself to work. It sounds unhealthy. Sure and it is but at the same time like that. Attitudes incredibly common. It's super common in our industry. You know. I felt that way from time to time. You probably have to think a lot of quote unquote knowledge workers or kind of encouraged to embrace this work. As i'm an is also great for our bosses right not to be you know like subversive or whatever but it's good for capitalism the more than we feel like work as our religion so all this stuff contributes to folks who maybe their job does provide them health insurance maybe they have a 401k. Their job might still be making their life kind of bad because they're at work all the time. Then you have service workers who have a rise in what's called just in time scheduling. Which means their schedules can be. Super unpredictable walks. Who's been at starbucks. Eight years says she sees the advent of optimal scheduling. When i was hired managers would be fired if they weren't putting schedules out. Three weeks in advance But now it's every week. And i believe it's the new automatic system only allows them to do a week in advance. But we're required to give six months in advance of availability of when we're available to work so like even if they're not working really really long hours maybe they have no idea what hours are going to be week to week. They have to be on call constantly. You know sometimes they're doing claw opening quote unquote which is like where you close the store and then you open the store. Six hours later tie channel today. I'm gonna give you tips on how to survive the dreaded khlopin. I do a coffin once a week which is closed on one day and that opened the very next day and these are my tips to help you survive a late night followed by an early morning so it can be almost like having a fifty our eighty hour work week just because you never know when someone's going to call you so just generally scheduling has become this huge problem and we're all sort of at the mercy of our work. I think in a way that labor reformers in the middle of the last century never never intended us to be not to mention a lot of people in the service industry in the people who may have been close opening. Lost their jobs during the pandemic right so you know. I think that the pendulum just made all this worse in so many different ways that we can talk about but one big thing it did is wipe away people's jobs. Millions of people lost their jobs last year. Disproportionately people in the service industry. Disproportionately low wage jobs or people didn't have a lot of savings they couldn't afford to lose a job. And if your job was just providing you the minimum level of security before now. There's nothing so. I think that was like the first step of being really disillusioned with jobs and employment in america. Okay so to recap just some of what you said. We're losing a lot of our worker. Protections other people are choosing to work more than ever. then there's people who are being abused in their work situations. A lot of those people have lost their jobs and then there's millions of people who are quitting their jobs. Where do we go from here. That ha- sounds really dark. Sean but i think that we're seeing some interesting cultural changes right now and like the biggest thing that we've seen is that i think the pandemic has kind of led to this collapse in the meaning of work for a lot of people so you know even over and above you know sort of money and security health insurance all the things we just talked about you know. I think there's been the sense that work provided a sense of purpose for people it provided the sense of camaraderie. You know you're together with your co workers. The pandemic really wiped a lot of that away. You know suddenly office workers rate. We're working out of our houses. Were on zoom. And i think that sense of purpose like people are reevaluating their sense of purpose right. Now they're questioning. you know. this is a time of trauma. This is a time when people lost their lives. Like what's really important. And i think all that reevaluation part of what. It's leading to his people leaving their jobs. Switching jobs is now easier than ever for a lot of people that are more companies going remote. Maybe these are people who have saved some money over the past year and so they're looking at their lives and saying why am i living like this. Why am i not doing something. I'm passionate about.

"Today explained. Thanks for joining us again. this coming. Monday is labor days. We're gonna take the day off and have a four day workweek but the company we work for vox. Media went ahead and gave us another day off this coming friday aka tomorrow so we're feeling extra lucky to have two four day workweeks in a row. Now i usually don't question extra days off and on the show today we're gonna talk about how are changing attitudes around work. Might actually change how we work. So i had to inquire about the extra friday off this morning. I hit up my boss's boss's boss's boss my great great grand boss. Sean i think just call us co workers. Jim bank off c. o. Vox media. why did you give us all another day off. Well it starts with the fact that we have all been working our tails off through a pandemic and we wanted to enable and empower our managers to encourage people to take more time but what we also found is that. It's sometimes hard to do that because we have things to do and the things that we have to do not only revolve around our own schedules but revolve around our coworkers schedules and revolve around schedules of people outside of the company to so we figured by having a day that everyone has off that would allow people to not feel the pressure of having to be there for their co workers When they were collaborating on a project you know so for all those reasons it all added up to like yeah. Let's do this and we're happy that we did okay. As my colleague. Jim mentioned working through the pandemic has changed things. This isn't just a theory at this point. It's a game changing reality. My other colleague anna north wrote about it for vox in an article provocatively titled the death of the job. Yeah i mean. I was really inspired. By the sort of idea of the so-called great resignation people are quitting their jobs in droves. And what's been dubbed the great resignation pushing job vacancies to all-time highs and a new survey from productivity for laddis found that fifty four percent of respondents are looking to change jobs and forty three percent. Say they're queer passive stalled or quote slowed to a crawl for context. Four million people quit their jobs in april alone danes so to be clear that's not like in a year that's in a month. It's a huge huge number. It's a record. And so it really kind of wanting to look into why and what the pandemic has done to jobs and you know work just got traumatic difficult and stressful in in new ways. But i think the sort of flip side of that is that it has opened up this door to talk about what should the role of work be in people's lives. And i think that can actually be an interesting conversation that maybe can open the door to making our lives a little better and i want to get to all the changes and what could come of them eventually but in your piece you talk a lot about the history of the american job. What did you discover when you looked into the background right so a lot of the things that we sort of think of as mainstays of jobs today for better for worse. They didn't come about by magic. They came about because labor activists fought for them so for example people in factories used to work six day week seven day weeks. You know incredibly long work. Weeks before labor organizers sort of started working on this issue worked on it for a long time and then during the nineteen thirties with the new deal. We start to see these labor reforms getting enshrine into law after money. Requests my papa. Congress passed a found labor standards but what we call the wages hours bill so we see the fair labor standards act which means if you work over forty hours a week. You're supposed to get overtime far reaching program. The most boss cited grow the benefit of work that has been adopted here or in any other. Country and labor organizers are kinda pushing for other things too. they don't always get them. A lot of folks. Wanted universal health care for example back in the nineteen thirties. We think of this is something that were arguing today. But this was an argument back then. How about the theory that the community can afford with the individual. Can't oh so you've been bitten by that boga. The people have pockets. Bill pay ten cents each week could give him a medical service very beautiful idea. And maybe in nineteen sixty practical one but it just won't work. They wanted a kind of universal retirement system. You know something to really take care of people when they're to work they didn't really get either of those things. And so in some cases what they kind of settled for. Were some benefits that were tied to your job so for example health insurance tied to your job or pensions. That were tied to your job. Where if you work a certain number of years at a certain company then they'll kind of take care of your retirement so instead of saying we're going to have the social safety net that takes care of everybody then we kind of get this conception where your job is sort of what takes care of you. What is like the ideal version of your job is supposed to take care of you. And when does that sort of peak. Yes so we kind of get to this idea. And the the late forties the nineteen fifties in of home vigorous workman rise to meet a new day and a new opportunity. No morning none. The nation's workman prompting them to their daily service. There's a certain category of job often. These are manufacturing jobs. These are jobs that are typically held by white men prejudice shop steward for the union which has an agreement with a mill. He represents the workers on the plants labor management committee these days. They're discussing production problems because these are jobs that thanks to the fair labor standards act. There's supposed to be forty hours a week or you get overtime. They pay you a certain amount you know. Sometimes they pay you enough that it doesn't just take care of your needs. It takes care of your kids and it takes care of you know you have a partner who may be able to stay home and take care of those kids you know. It's the sort of what they call the quote unquote family wage. And then you get benefits out of that job right you get healthcare and you had a pension at some point so when you no longer are able to work or you're no longer want to work you actually get paid and you can take time and you can rest and play with your grandchildren. This is the sort of you know. Quote unquote american dream ideal. And we're talking ideals but this ideal was only ideal for a segment of the population right. I think we have this ideal of how jobs used to be and the reality. Is that these kinds of jobs. Were only ever for certain people for starters. There were lots of people who are left out of the fairly rare standards so that includes domestic workers and agricultural workers who were disproportionately likely to be black or a latin acts or other people of color and then it's also the case that there were big sectors of the economy that never had these kind of quote unquote good jobs so if you worked in a customer service job you worked in retail other service sector type jobs. They didn't really experience the same kind of nineteen fifties peak so one labor historian. I talked to pointed out a lot of retail jobs. Were just considered women's jobs so the idea is if you like became a salesperson a sales girl quote unquote for example that people your employer would assume you don't actually need enough money to support a family because you're only a woman you just need quote unquote pin money. Which is like money to buy pens.

"That i don't know somebody somebody right in and let us know if somebody's audits. If you know how. This should be pronounced because i also see so. I can see it as i see. They wanna keep the the french pronunciation the total energies but also see being a play on their name and it's total energies. Kinda cool right then. Of course there's sponsors one of our sponsors amazon to tell you. Welcome for that introduction but almost as bad as your other segue but when you read this article there's part of this that's actually very strategic is going on so even though we know amazon will amazon's one of our sponsors reload them death i did you know amazon has electrical distribution part of their business honestly. I'm not surprised i mean. Jeff bezos just went to space in a large phallic thing rocket. So okay so there's a couple of things going on here so to tell energies amazon. Basically sign an agreement and what to- towels wanting from amazon is help with their cloud services and they also want to by about five hundred megawatts of renewable energy in the us and here in europe. And amazon's gonna supply that renewable energy so amazon very interesting company. Jeff bezos regardless. What you'd think about him is a genius and what he's done is very beginning. He founded market that he could disrupt with technology which ridgely books right totally disrupted that market owned it then started selling other stuff and they had to invent a lot of technology to make efficient because he had to compete against the walmarts of the world right and that technology eventually got to point where it stood on his own and they could sell the technology. That's amazon web services right. Well as the company grew as amazon grew and as the company became more aware of their impacted environment. They want it to lessen their carbon footprint and one of the ways they could do is generate their own renewable atrocity just like the headed generate their cloud. Right now they're doing so good and generate no new electric. They can now sell it to other people. I'm telling you people maybe not in my lifetime but somewhere in the future you could be watching. Tv or virtual reality and you can see people mining presses minerals and space and those ships say halliburton amazon on. I'm telling you it's coming so what's happening here is total is now committing financially to buy power through amazon because it's renewable so now total can also get those carbon credits for reducing basically.

Invest foreign investment dollars and we can get our hands around us. The researchers documented eleven serious security incidents against ships. That was just just the first half twenty. Twenty seven yeah. So that lebanese two zero. Yes okay so. The next article is top three. Us refiners set for first prophet since pandemic started by a cake or cupcakes. Up here the exxon valeros michelle deer park. They have literally went through hell. During twenty twenty there was there was almost no demand for refined goods but because of the pandemic they could use that downtown to do plant maintenance. It's still not back to where it needs to be but but like we talked about earlier. Demand for jet fuels has went up dramatically. Gasoline diesel has been going up and demand for. Petrochemicals are going up soon. We're headed back to where we need to be from the refinery part of the business now. One of the things that i'm slightly worried about is refinery the fire business typically is a high volume low margin business. Make a little bit of margin over very large amounts of money were very large chunks time but now page. The price of both crude natural gas has gone up dramatically. And that's the refineries raw feedstock so now that demands coming back and they see the light in the tunnel. They could start making money again. All of a sudden they're all feedstock. Prices going up with disco hurt their margins. So they're kind of catch twenty two position. The more modern refineries here in europe. Or it'll be fine. The ones i'm worried about the very old refiners that aren't as efficient and right now every penny counts and the dow shing part of business you know. They're looking at the major refiners here in the us looking about one dot three billion dollars in combined earnings. That's actually really cool. But this could be a peak and it could actually go back down if the price of natural gas and crude steve keep going up. Or if this resurgence of the delta variety of the covert nineteen virus starts clampdown countries in in travel again so fingers crossed the refiners. You know like. I said they went through hell. And they're just not getting their head above water. And i just hope they will keep their head above water for a little while. Okay so fbi. China is behind past oil and gas pipeline cyber attack.

"The thing that i learned the most was that working smarter as really to pause for a second and be really intentional. What am i doing right now. Am i interrupting myself. One of the things. That really blew my mind in cal. Newport's book deep work. Was he talks a lot about how much we waste. Our time. In things that we think is really productive like checking email frequently throughout the day. And if you just cut back that email checking right that reaction that addiction that we have to like reacting to something if you cut down that to check in twice a day over sudden your day gets much shorter because you can sit down and for those two hours. Just do really meaning for working. I i frequently will write a list of like. What's the most important thing i need to do this week. One or two things. And if i'm really focused can get them done by tuesday. And then it's you looking at wednesday and thursday and saying What what else can i do. And should i do anything else. I think really in all of these comments that i've heard from from your listeners. Especially i think there's this thing that we're not we have to think about is. What are we working on. What's enough like what's the thing that's actually going to move. Our business forward our company forward and if we prioritize that then you get this really you are maybe working less. But you're not. You're producing more better work. And i think that's really. That's what we saw in the last four years is. We're just so much more intentional with what we're doing and why we're doing those things and really cutting down on kinda fluff. You know the the the random things that distract but feel really good. They feel like progress but they're not actually progressed. Well it's not just a four day work week we're talking about. It's also a three day weekend. And here's part of what matt in. Florida left in our inbox. Having that extra day off is very helpful. Getting things done to where. I wouldn't have to take a day off or like doctors appointments and stuff like that professor honeycutt growing interest in in the four day workweek is happening at the same time as. We're seeing a shift away from materialism and towards the so called experience economy. Meaning people are spending less money on things and more on things to do. What linked to uc between the two trends. The experience economy is booming with the ending of the pandemic people now are making a rush to To those experiences The economy is moving in that direction. People especially younger folks. The millennial millennial generation's are buying more experiences than tangible goods and services and buying goes experiences require time The demand for additional. Free time. I think it will increase it. Looks like it with things likely afford a week three day weekend on an expanding market they are for experienced designers I i really think that It's a thriving opportunity. A golden opportunity for the entrepreneur to design experiences for that marketplace for the millennial generation leisure and work. Both changing. Work is as you said at the beginning of pro. We think the five day week is something that comes down from from heaven or something. There's always been there was not work. Itself is changing a leisure is changing. And the experience economy i think is at the forefront of that change making the changes occur or causing the changes with the with the demand from your experiences Comes the demand for more time to to to buy those experiences. I wanna make sure we addressed the question. We got from Louisa who emailed us at her her ten year old son wanted to know if a four day workweek will apply to the school week as well. And that's not the only young listener who had that question. I mean alex is there. Is that a possibility. I mean we know we saw during the pandemic how closely linked childcare and the school day are in when kids are out of school things get really tricky for parent. Is there any link. There are school systems. That have moved to four day weeks though mainly they've done so either as a way of recruiting and retaining teachers so they're places that are underfunded or in rural areas or they've had to do it for because of budget cuts so the evidence. Is that students who move to four day weeks of do not lose out in terms of reading comprehension or test scores but it really does illustrate that the degree to which like all of society in the economy depends on schools operating in a reliable fashion. And so i think in order for this really to take off it would be necessary to solve the problem of. What do you do with with with the child on the fifth day. And so you know. I think until we get more widespread adoption of the four day week in industry You know that's always going to be doing it for. Schools is going to continue to be a struggle. Natalie we have just about a minute here. And i just want to hear from you what advice you have for. People who who want to encourage their workplaces to adopt a day workweek. What key questions should they be asking themselves. I think the question that i think is most important is to figure out a way to define together with your boss with your team. What enough is this whole conversation. All i kept thinking is like the problem with technology. Making things better is that we just fill that time with more work. You know like oh you can do it faster. Let's add another stop to your route. We have to get back to this place. What i what. I usually tell folks go to your boss and ask what enough is. What's the project that needs to be done. Not the number of hours have to spend on that project or not the number. You know the time that it's gonna take to do it and then see how long it takes to get there because if we can prove to each other that we can get the same high quality work done in less time because we're more focused because we're more intentional. We can prove that you can get the same output the same results by working less. That's natalie nagel the co founder and ceo of the software company. Wild bit also with us. Today alex.

"The forgotten american dream of from working women in massachusetts who who talked about having an extra two hours a day what meant to them and looking forward to their children and grandchildren and hoping this gradual decrease in working hours would make possible a larger fuller life for everyone including the working classes especially the working classes. Who would have an opportunity to develop their own culture to live. There is really more and more outside of the marketplace. Alex where does the movement for four day. Workweek stand in other countries like iceland iceland. Actually a a has moved its public sector workers. So that's more than twenty thousand people about fifteen percent of the workforce to shorter workweek so somewhere between thirty and thirty five hours depending on whether you're night shift or or or you'll working during the day and then in other countries we're seeing it in mainly in the private sector but it's you know not just like nordic countries or places where would work rules are a little more relaxed but also in korea and japan to countries that have had to invent words for working yourself to death so it is a surprisingly international movement in across the developed world at professor honeycutt. We're getting lots of people when he to explain a little bit more about the role. Labor unions had and shortening the work day and the workweek. Is that something you can speak about. Of course well. They lead the way organized. Labor certainly I'm not sure you're familiar with a bumper sticker that advertises the afl. The folks who gave us the weekend familiar to me. But they brag about the fact that the that organized labor elsa cio were in the forefront of the real reduction of working hours at least until mid century the mid twentieth century they were certainly at the forefront leading the way i think as they led the way a lot of people followed and the gradual drawing. Down working hours had was was largely Free market phenomenon not necessarily caused exclusively by labor as i say. Labor leads the way but the rest of the marketplace follows. We'll continue our conversation on the movement toward a four day workweek in just a moment this message comes from. Npr sponsor pay comb according to new one poll research shared by pay com. Employees are so frustrated with its heck. They use at work. That sixty seven percent said. They're willing to take a pay cut for something better. Ouch only pay calms. Comprehensive technology. Automates their hr and payroll tasks in a single software. That's easy to use and for employers automatically measures the roi that results learn. How the right. Hr tech can help by visiting pay com dot com slash frustrations support for npr and the following message. Come from better help. Offering online counseling. Better help their taboo. Joe knows that lockdown has been hard on us as humans. We as people are hardwired to connect with others. Which is why this whole time is so difficult. Now let's get back to our conversation about the growing movement for a four day. Workweek bill in tennessee wanted to weigh in. He runs a business with four employees who all have cans during cobra. We went to four days a week since cova lesser concern. We have gone to four and a half days. I still pay five days. And it's made a huge difference in our environment distress of family back and forth and going to this go into that seems to have been lessened somewhat still during the week. Come and go as you please. Same thing to me or explained to take your work etcetera but anyways working out great for us. It'd be very easy to do for everybody bill. Thanks for that message now. Alex what we've been talking about so far really is built on this idea that people are are working as a part of a company. But what does this mean for. People who are self-employed. Well i think that the people who are self-employed. Yes they do. Have the have a challenge of incentives worries about about turning down work and of reducing their working hours. I think that it does illustrate that. The reduction of working hours you know we often think of efficiency and productivity is like completely personal things. But they're really there's really an important organizational dimension to and one of the reasons that places like wild bit have been able to successfully moved afford a week is that you've got the reinforcement of working with other people who have that same goal and who are trying to do it with you so but i think that the more companies moved to four day weeks the more that standard will be something that people who were freelancers or who were solo preneurs can adopt for themselves. Because you know their partners working for day weeks will make it easier for them to do so as well. We also got this tweet from gavin. Who says we implemented a four day week a little over a year ago at our company. T. w. studio in rochester new york increase in happiness productivity creativity and revenue across the board. Hope those who are able to consider the move do some natalie. I'm curious about a possible tension between working smarter and working last so trying to get the same amount of work done in less time by doing that. Deep work but also this idea that we should be working less. Did you find any tension in those two ideas. You were making this transition at your company you know. I think i was thinking about kind of alec said too. I think there's a there's the the most beautiful thing that we found that i think kind of pushes back against that tension is that we end up spending most of our days not actually doing the right work or the the the work. That's gonna push everything forward. Even further solo preneurs right..

"Wanted to join. The conversation to my company has embraced the four day workweek in a sort of way. We have adleman fridays. If all of our work done during the week and we worked thirty two hours were allowed to take fridays off if we have more work to do or if we had to take sick or vacation time earlier in the week we don't get that friday off. We need to make it up somehow. It's been great. I in most of the time. Take a day off and watch my child but it can have some hiccups to met jim. Thanks for that message. Now natalie what did it take to transition your company to afford day work week. You said you started off just shutting things down on friday. How did you move forward. We we i kinda said we can take the friday off but we can't just gonna continue business as usual so we started to reflect internally on how to maximize deep work and so that took two approaches one was looking at how we work together as a company and we asked folks to look at what meetings are sitting in or how we prioritize projects and really. Try to get really intentional with what we're working on. And why and then. We asked every individual on the team to reflect internally on in themselves on when they're most productive and a kind of coordinate their lives or their work time their work lives around that one of my favorite examples of that is where we're remote team but we're also distributed team in many different time zones and so we had asked the team for week to sit down and write down for a couple of weeks to write down when they were in deep work and when they were not deep work not to get in trouble but to really reflect and say like what is distracting them or pulling them away from deep work after there's four weeks of recording the weekly deep deport time everybody was able to look back and say where maybe a meeting could be moved. Let's say an hour so that their deep work time wasn't interrupted by meeting was Collaborating around the rest of their teammates. So we really just were able to adjust and constantly evolved so that we can really just continuously maximized deep work because the more you can get those four solid hours a day. You got so much done that. You're you're basically done for the day. What we prioritize and so is your company open just four days a week. Do you have people working on a rotating basis. How does that work functionally. We have a customer success team. That alternates fridays and mondays. So we had an extra cost to what if workweek cost. It's just kind of beefing that team. They alternate fridays and mondays so that our customers get full five days of support but the teams make the team members themselves get three consecutive days off so we just kind of buffered that way but everybody else is often fridays. Have there been any drawbacks from a change. I think in the beginning the the hardest part of transitioning to this was kind of a self-inflicted worry over whether or not we were gonna do enough. We were so early in this that the fear was our competitors. Going to outpace us. Or we're not gonna get enough done. What if we're not getting enough of the code written you know where software company so we're not writing enough code or or we're not shipping as many features that quickly faded when we spent time reflecting. Are we adding too much on our plate or are we creating too many arbitrary deadlines that are unnecessary. I think now the biggest challenge really is that. We're all really committed to our fridays offer. V day off so sometimes if you have to work a friday it feels a little bit like. Oh i'm i'm getting robbed a little bit. You know But other than it's really just been wonderful well. It feels like america's in from the the country's inception this hard work above all has been one of the the core ideals but some of the great speakers at the seventeen eighteen hundreds of poet. Walt whitman preacher. Jonathan edwards believed. We should be working less. Not more english economist. John maynard qian's not so to professor honeycutt. what was the philosophy around work and leisure during that time period. Well as saying try to write about in free time. The forgotten american dream shorter hours and higher wages together constituted the american dream in the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth century. People like john maynard. Keynes expected the process to continue of short hours He predicted two and a half hours. A day on By nine thousand. Nine hundred eighty so the expectation was that We take care of business would get work done. The machine technology would allow us to do more and more and less and less time and so gradually we would claim the realm of freedom. We would get graduate from work into this realm of freedom where we live our lives freely together as walt whitman talk about higher progress not progress just in material terms in our wealth but progress in our humanity and there was a slew of people in the nineteenth century. Who wrote about of this. This possibility the opening realm of freedom made possible by the gradual drawdown of working hours and was was the i that i deal was it extended to. Everyone was it or was it for for certain for certain people that you'd be able to work less and have more leisure time. No no it. It it originates. What are they most important places whereas you nation of this idea of higher progress was in the working was in the labor movement and working class people in massachusetts form the first union the causal the awakening of the american labor movement was shorter hours accompanied by this dream. Some of my favorite passages in.

"Jim from the mountains of north carolina. Beautiful place here and joining us from italy. Is natalie nagel. She's the ceo and co founder of the software company. Wild bit natalie. It's great to have you on. Thanks for having me. I'm it's a beer. No naturally you and all the employees at your company work four days a week and that's thirty two hours rather than forty not just forty hour squish into four days. And you may the change back in two thousand seventeen salaries aren't any last. What happened to your business when you made the shift. We were on our after first year reflected and we actually did a lot more work than we had done the previous year over these last four years our company has grown faster than it has in the previous sixteen years. We've been business. Alex you've been tracking this trend in new spoken to hundreds of business owners who've also moved to four day workweeks. How popular is this well. It is a movement that started a few years ago. Natalie was one of the early adopters in the us. But you know now. There are hundreds of companies in industries around the world. Who are doing it. So it's really. It's really taken off even in an almost. Because of the pandemic professor honeycutt the cycle of the five day workweek than the two day weekend feels totally ingrained in our society. But it's actually something of a modern construct. How in win did the five day workweek start. The five day workweek came in gradually at the first part of the twentieth century. That followed a long process of shorter hours. The idea of gradually reducing work hours long when it goes back in our history of this country back to the colonial days of people in the nineteenth century americans in nineteenth and twentieth century saw the progressive shortening of the hours of labour part of of of progress part of the definition of progress and the five day week was simply part of that. A gradual drawing down a work increasing leisure the eight hour day of course would be the other part of it and retirement the other part so it was a process again. We have really no additions to the weekend since the nineteen twenties That that process of work reduction stopped a mid-century and The question that i've had as a historian wanted that process that no one really expected to stop and they did stop. Maybe it's beginning again. It's hard to tell so so what you're saying is is there. Was this expectation that we would continue to be able to work less in building more leisure time. But that actually hasn't really happened not hasn't on the four day week is not something that's novel or a liberal conspiracy of it goes back Review from the new york times headline odd date. September twenty third nineteen fifty six above the fold sunday times nixon. Richard nixon foresees four day workweek. This is a nineteen fifty. Six read bit more as a part of the campaign vice president richard nixon for saul tonight for the not too distant future afford a day workweek in a fuller american a for all americans. These are not idle dreams or or boasts their simple projections of the gains. We have made in the last four years. Nixon says now this is important. Our hope is to double everyone's standard of living and ten years notice there. He's defining reduced working hours the four day week here As part of american standard of living. And that's the way you short hours were understood for over a century in this country as both higher wages and shorter hours both gradually one increasing wages the other decreasing short hours that as recently as nineteen fifty-six nixon's speech here on on natalie. I wanna bring you in because you switched your company to a four day. Workweek in twenty seventeen after being inspired by computer scientists cal newport and a term he coined called deep work. It's my term for when you're focusing without distraction on a cadre demanding task which is something we've all done but we had never really given it a name necessarily it was separate from other type of work and so i gave it a name and said let's compare that to other types efforts. You might do while you're working and see that the deep work efforts actually have a huge benefit. We might be underestimating. How did that concept of deep work inspire you to transition your company to the four day workweek. Yeah when we. I read cows book and tigers. Two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen. The thing that really was startling was the a lot of the science around how much deep work we're actually capable of producing in a single day and you know at at that time. The the signs was showing that. It's around you max out at around four hours a day real deep work. The work that were hired to do you know not checking email or sitting in a meeting and so we looked at it and said well four times five days a week. That's twenty hours a week. What on earth are we all doing for forty hours a week and we're really gave us the idea that like. Why can't we try to just work. Prioritize deep work in our workweek and work less hours. That's what was the beginning of the experiment where we dropped a friday and said let's just give it a shot and see what falls apart if we just really focus on. How do we maximize company and as individuals are deep work every day and work a lot less but at the same or better work done and that book. You're referencing by cal. Newport is called deep work rules for focused success in distracted world. How much were you also motivate it though by trying to improve the quality of life for your employees absolutely. I think you know when people ask me often. Is this for productivity sake. I think you know it's it's a if we were focused primarily on productivity on sucking out every ounce of tepe worked for my team we'd probably work five six hour days you know because you can't you wanna short in the days but for us. It was a combination of you. Know how productive can we be. Can we do our best work in four days but then also add this extra day of rest and i think there's like this real importance to the three consecutive days of rest that allows our teammates and ourselves to really connect with our families. Connect with ourselves connected our communities have that moment of a regrouping being present and then coming back to work. I think we said earlier really refreshed really excited. I think one of the interviewers you had recorded said you know people are relaxed thing more calm had tremendous impact on everybody's just personal psyche and energy and all of that by having these three for us really important. These three consecutive days of rest. We're talking about the four day workweek. We'll be back with more in just a moment this message comes from. Npr sponsor pay comb according to new.

"Ground proposal representativity you've been in the trenches trying to to work this out and make some sort of a deal happened. Can you just give us the latest. I know all the details are there yet. But what would this plan. Look like if it were by. Well the latest been mad we now see on the senate side that roughly mirrors a lot of what we negotiated in the problem solvers caucus in the house of the problem solvers caucus is twenty nine democrats twenty nine republicans. We a couple weeks ago. Put forward our proposal building bridges about one point two five trillion our now seeing movement in the senate with twenty one senators ten democrats and republicans approximately a trillion dollar package. A so now. We're seeing some movement in the senate so making us optimistic that we can't get a bipartisan. Deal package representativity. What have you heard from from the leadership. Both in the house and in the senate. Because i think that's been a big question to every time you have more republicans who come on board. There's the threat that you'll lose some of the progressive democrats. Where where does the leadership stand. Listen i think that in this package. There's nothing more bipartisan than infrastructure. I think we can all agree. We have crumbling roads and bridges across this country waterway. Our waterways are ports. There's definitely on a consensus that we need to invest in infrastructure. And certainly a lot of this is gonna be the devils in the details especially in the wars you know. We made a concerted efforts. I talk about the size than look at the scope. That's exactly what we're doing. This very complicated. I think that we're seeing movement in their certainly an appetite to get something done the pay for us have to be the trickiest. Part of all of this is going to come. You think with with taxes being raised. Because that's been a sticking point for at least the republican leadership. Yeah i mean first of all. There's a slew of proposals on the pay for. I think the most important is closing the tax gap i ins and also looking at some partnerships public private partnerships. So obviously this is gonna be the the big negotiating. Part of this package is how we pay for all of this. But what we're seeing in the package that came out of the senate is five hundred. Seventy nine billion dollars of new spending. I think that's a sign that we're moving in the right direction governor hogan. How important is this from maryland. What do you need in terms of infrastructure right now in your state. Well i would say all governors some both sides of the aisle really believed this is a top priority. And we're pleased that we're finally making progress. This really isn't a republican or democratic issue. I think the leadership on both sides. You know didn't wanna go big enough. The democrats want to too big that include a lot of things that had nothing to do with infrastructure. And i take my hat off to our group the problem solvers caucus which is part of no labels and the group of the g. Twenty group of bipartisan senators in senate for getting us where we are and we had very encouraging news out of the white house the president sounding like he does want to continue on in a bipartisan. Way it means it means a lot of means jobs as coming out of this pandemic trying to grow our economy and put people to work and it's critically important. It also i think is is the administration's to show that they are willing to work in a bipartisan way. As as go biden on talked about in his inauguration representative leave out a all ask one more time just in terms of what you hear from the leadership. What is nancy pelosi. Signaled what has schumer signaled or are they waiting to see what president biden signals. I definitely we're expecting hear back from the white house today on this proposal of the senate on. I think that that's going to be an indication of where we're heading. I mean i. I know that there's a definitely an appetite to get this done on a bipartisan manner. This part of the package. Obviously looking to conciliation as well listen. This is the biggest investment infrastructure that we've ever seen so clearly. It's complicated taking some time. I think most importantly the leadership wants us to get a package done. And and so. I'm looking forward to hearing what the white house has to say today. In response to the senate plan if the white house scuttled at this point is that is that. Is that game over legit. I don't think the white house is going to scuttle it. I definitely been in contact with all of us both house side in senate side as we walked through these steps in trying to get to this package of the president has made it clear he does not wanna raise taxes on individuals. Earning under four hundred thousand dollars In obviously we have to. There's gonna be some serious negotiations on. And they take time. I think we need to look at all of this in a holistic manner on and so. I think that we're going to see the step by step forward. That would preclude. If you don't want to raise taxes on anyone under for making under four hundred thousand dollars that would preclude raising the gas tax. Which is something that some democratic senators have kind of been in favor of to correct. Yes i you know. I think the president has been very clear that he does not wanna raise taxes on those making under four hundred thousand dollars. Guest certainly would be that and again. I think we have to look at all. These pay for says a package i. You can't work at one of them in a vacuum and so And again is gonna be the hardest part of these. Negotiations is how we pay for this. Governor are there any taxes or any pay for is that you would be opposed to or is it just more important for you to to see some sort of deal come together and some sort of infrastructure spending get put into place whereas representative lisa reaching the spending number. It was the was the big first step to go from two point. Three trillion down to one trillion. So that's that's the we're all the effort has been But i think we can really do this without raising taxes. And the smith different proposals from the house problem solvers. And from some of the senator you know there's there's going to be pushed back from both sides about raising taxes. I'm not sure. That's what america wants but private sector of public private partnerships is a big part of it. Unspent money on other things and shifting around some priorities and where we're spending money now can get pretty close and you know we've got to figure out the last Last few miles to go On how we're going to come up with bay force clever last few miles for the infrastructure. Bill governor representative wanna thank you both for being with us today. Thank you will be next. Unsquashed pod long weekends forever.
