23. Russia Had Tried ‘Deleting’ Weekends
For many of us, we work or study through the week in the hopes of enjoying ourselves during the weekend. So imagine what would happen if, one fine day, you find out that there are no weekend anymore!
That was the sad reality for the Russian people in 1930, when their leader Joseph Stalin decided to abolish weekend in order to boost productivity. In 1931, h changed it to a 6 day week, and finally back to a 7 day week in 1941 – when it was clear that people cant be productive without relaxing on weekends!
