I have a serious question and don't ask this facetiously.... how much money would the Federal Government save if they went to a four day workweek Monday - Thursday, and shut down government offices on Fridays? Has this all ready been thought of?

Especially if they kept the offices open only for 8 hours a day and cut back staff in those offices to 32 hours/week like they would do in a regular business?

I had a lot of part time staff when I was the manager of the animal facilities. Most of the animal care staff were part time. And yes we did it so we wouldn't have to pay benefits. You had to work at least 30 hours/week to get benefits like health insurance and paid holidays.
