6-year-old boy, Brodie Kenyon, wants to be president as he protests for 3-day off from school to play with friends and granny

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that 6-year-old boy, Brodie Kenyon, wants to be president as he protests for 3-day off from school to play with friends and granny.

In a video shared by his mom on Instagram, Brodie says that he has been "dreaming" of a three-day break from school.

"Hey, I'm Brodie and this is for the government and I'm protesting," he says in the video. "I want three days off of school because, um, I've been tired of school lately and I've been dreaming for three days off. Two days is not enough from school. I need three days off."

15% surveyed claimed that productivity had surged dramatically - while the remainder recorded either no change or only a 'slight improvement' in output.

Companies previously said they had struggled with scheduling chaos and staff confusion after rolling out the four-day week, with bosses admitting that they doubted the policy could survive the trial period.

Samantha Losey, boss of communications firm Unity, told The Telegraph last month: 'It's more likely that we won't carry on now. One of the things that has struck me is whether or not we are a mature enough business to be able to handle the four-day week.

The rest of the world not doing four-day weeks makes it challenging. We agreed we'd go all the way through the pilot, but I'm questioning whether this is the right thing for us long-term. It's been bumpy for sure.'

However, toward the end of the trial, it seems that despite the 'rough times' she acknowledged during the changeover process, her attitude towards the concept was a much more positive one:

'Ultimately, the outcomes we're experiencing, such as better, higher, and a positive team culture shift are reassuring that the bumps in the road are exponentially worth it.'

Brodie's mother, Jessica, also posted the video to Instagram, where it's amassed nearly 175,000 likes, and wrote that her son 'asked me if I sent this yet and if we have 3 day weekends now.'

In fact, an increasing number of companies are switching their adult workers over to four-day work weeks, for several of the reasons succinctly outlined by Brodie.

Late last year, 100 British companies began instituting a four-day work week with no loss of pay for the impacted workers.

The argument is that the four-dayweek will drive companies to improve productivity, hoping they will be able to create the same amount of output in fewer hours.

A previous trial in France found that workers were putting in the same number of number of hours even with one fewer day and companies had to pay overtime for the work.

Adam Ross, the CEO of Awim - one of the largest British companies to implement the change - said the shift was 'one of the most transformative initiatives we've seen in the history of the company.'

'Over the course of the last year and a half, we have not only seen a tremendous increase in employee wellness and wellbeing but concurrently, our customer service and relations, as well as talent relations and retention also have benefited.'

In September, 88 per cent of those companies in a survey in the middle of the trial said the four-day week was working 'well' for their business at that stage of the trial.

About 95 per cent of the companies surveyed said productivity had either stayed the same or improved since the introduction.

However, only around half of those taking part responded to a survey canvassing opinion at the halfway point, with nearly nine in ten of the respondents saying that they would keep the scheme in place beyond the trial period.

Brodie's mom Jessica Kenyon wrote on Instagram that she "fully supports" the video. She also wrote that Brodie has asked her if she sent the video and if his three-day weekend request had been granted.

While the 6-year-old may not have heard back from "the government" yet, his petition has already earned support online.

"The hero we all need. Get him to Washington!" one commenter wrote on Kenyon's Instagram video.

"Brodie is a very smart little man with a very feasible idea and great reasoning to back said protest. His parents should also only work a 4 day week and have a 3 day weekend to spend time with and raise this precious child," wrote another commenter.
