Spain’s acting government to push for a 37½-hour workweek. That’s if it can remain in power

MADRID (AP) — The parties forming Spain’s acting government say they will push for a 37½-hour workweek.  The coalition partners struck the agreement on Tuesday as they try to remain in power following an inconclusive election in July. Spain has had a 40-hour workweek for the past two decades. The proposal is for Spain to have a 38½-hour workweek next year and for that to fall to 37½ hours in 2025. Spain’s Socialist Party and its junior leftist coalition partner Sumar or Joining Forces have until Nov. 27 to earn the backing of the majority of Spain’s Parliament to form a new government. Another election will be held in January if they fail.
