4 10 hr workdays

I believe it would be beneficial if most government agencies work 4 10 hr days. This would reduce the cost of overhead on heating, cooling and commuter traffic congestion/pollution. I do not believe it would hinder the jobs that we do and for those mission critical employees, perhaps they would need to work every other week 5 days. In addition, most federal agencies are not promoting teleworking. I believe it should be mandatory that 1 day out of 10 workdays should be accomplished from home. If there was more teleworking, the need for such big offices would be reduced, and with telecommunications with computers, blackberries, email there is no reason that managers should still be micro-managing employees.
