A 39-Hour Week?:

Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne told airmen at Incirlik AB, Turkey on a visit there last week that the idea behind the Air Force’s upcoming personnel cuts is not to work the remaining personnel harder but smarter. Talking specifically about the 200-slot cut at Incirlik, Wynne said: “It is not that you used to work a 40-hour week and now you work a 55-hour week. … We want to cut the 200 slots and now you’re working a 39-hour week with one hour to plan for the future.”
