The United Arab Emirates (UAE) just made an incredible announcement. For the first time ever, a nation will be having 4.5 days of workdays per week. This means that the nation will have 2.5 days per week as the weekend. This is revolutionary news indeed. However, as of now, this is only applicable to the public sector.

What’s more astonishing about this announcement is the fact that UAE will switch from its Friday and Saturday weekend. In detail, starting January 01, 2022, the citizens of UAE working in the public sector will enjoy their weekend from Friday mid-day till Sunday. Although, work timings on Friday will begin earlier than usual to make up for the half-day off.

Truly, this is a big move from the UAE. The nation is reflecting their weekend to match with most of the international world. Thus, Real Research would like to find out public thoughts on this with a survey on 4.5 day work week in UAE. For instance, are UAE residents happy with this change?
