School Switches to Four Day Work Week

In this tough economy, schools are doing everything they can to save money.

Wallace Community College is reducing their work week to four days to avoid layoffs.

Alabama's Department of Post-Secondary Education's budget was reduced by $1 million this year.

Wallace employees will work an additional two hours a day.

The abbreviated week will save the school over $22,000.

School officials say salaries will not be affected by the change.

Wallace Community College is part of 100 school districts using the 4-day week.
