The Kingdom is looking to implement the holidays similar to those of Sharjah, UAE who also recently changed to a 4-day work-week. The UAE also recently updated their workdays to align with most of the world’s Monday to Friday work-week.
The video of the news was posted on Twitter, and residents are in full support for the change
