As Loverboy sang on their classic song from the 80's "Everybody's workin' for the weekend" and some even get their weekend started off early.  If you are one of these individuals consider yourself lucky.  Statistics show more and more employers are letting their workers off early on Fridays to give them the 3 day weekend feel every week.  This means they are also working them more hours during the week to make sure they get a good 40 hours out of their workers.  But who wouldn't work a few extra hours 4 days a week to get off at noon every Friday?  Sounds like my kind of work environment.
