Put your workers on a 4 day week on full pay and watch revenues rocket: pseudo capitalism it is so easy when your sales are pure fiction!

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 9 March 2023

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

A pilot scheme where workers got full pay for doing just 4 days a week was recently hailed by those organising it as a triumph and among those wheeled out to boast of its success was David Richards MBE of Wandisco (WAND). claiming his company's sales had rocketed seven fold and productivity was up 25%. In fact...

Mr Richards was considering putting staff on a 3 day week for even bigger gains. Give the man awarded an MBE for offering up data to support bogus science in the scamdemic another gong. Unfortunately it today emerged that those sale numbers were driven by fraud and that, in fact were not $24 million as had been claimed but just $9 million. As a result of this Wandisco is now in a financial crisis which may well see it go bust, a $1 billion blow up.

Maybe if Richards puts his staff on a two day week on full pay it will be even better?
