Dean buries his lead... again:
"If we all worked five per cent fewer hours, then seven million more workers could have jobs at the same level of demand."The result of that burial is that only one of the 49 comments (so far) even mentioned the shorter work time angle of Dean's "pay for play" idea.
Dean first mooted his idea for a shorter work time tax credit back in January and since then it has generated hardly any controversy. "Ho hum... create seven million jobs you say? Who cares?"
Now that the prospect of a second (or, more accurately third) stimulus package is looming, what are the chances that a shorter work time proposal will get wider discussion? The Sandwichman is not holding his breath.
