Saturday always has that restful feeling of peace and quiet, an unhurried pace, even in the metropolis, and that's how it should be on Sabbath.
There was a time when most people worked five days a week, one day was for rest and refreshment, and one day was for God, to go to the temple or church or even sit at home and read the Holy Book, be it the Bhagvad Gita, Quaran or Bible or the Talmud or Torah.
Then along came the changes in law, to allow trading seven days. At first it looked good, people were making a bit more money working on Saturday or Sunday....Then after eight or nine months of 7 day trading, some shops started to close in all neighbourhoods. An analysis of that may reveal that there is only so much work, and working five days is ideal, so there is enough to stretch around for everybody.
A flexible rota of five-day working week would in my opinion do good, and help restore the balance, where people don't have to work over-hard whilst others cannot find work.
One day for rest and relaxation, and one day for God.
I think that would re-balance the world.
Let me have your thoughts on this.
