Indycube on the BBC
At Indycube, we operate a four day working week, which means each member of the team gets a day to do whatever they like - relax, volunteer, be there for the school pick up, or work on other creative projects.
The BBC came to speak with us last week about this, as part of a feature about unions calling for a four day week across the board. Mari, Russell and Mark were all featured in their video which broadcast on BBC Breakfast, (available on iplayer here), and written about in this article.
We're speaking about the four day week because we think it's really important. Wellbeing is at the forefront of what we do, and we're not afraid to shout about it! The BBC were reporting on employers, shareholders and working hours, which we recognise doesn't apply to freelancers and self-employed individuals, who aren't currently able to work a four day week and continue to support themselves. That's why we're campaigning for Universal Basic Income across the board - we think everyone should have the right to live and work in a fulfilled environment, with the time and energy to nuture creative pursuits, family life, and everything in between!
You can support our campaign, and many others, by joining Indycube as a member.
