Sundays off? Sundays unpaid, more like.

Many people rely on the income; this isn't just about the consumer.

(Because capitalism has done such a great job sorting out the railways, and fair pay structures in the financial services of course).

That's it settled for me, we need to follow Poland's example asap.
Thanks. I was worried i'd gone too far, but if you disagree , I must be right.

It is strange but it seems to work well in Frankfurt. You see a lot more families out together and they do like a regular weekend festival.

Yes, but make it a Wednesday (traditionally a poor day for retail) or Monday. Problem with closing on a Sunday is that these days, logistically it kind of makes sense to be open on a Saturday and Sunday in terms of customers needs.

Or restrict hours. Many stores seem to be open 12-14 hours a day. I remember when I worked in retail, over 20 years ago, I worked Tuesday to Saturday. As soon as Sunday opening arrived, I also worked 10 till 4pm Sundays as well.

Or simply restrict the working week to 38 hours. Above which, overtime must be paid. Could help with low wages in retail.

I was in Oslo recently and the vast majority of shops there were closed on a Sunday, including the shopping mall.
