Summarize the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they cast doubt on specific points made in the reading passage.

The article and the lecture are both about reducing a five-day workweek to a four-day one. While the author of the article argues that a four-day week has many benefits for the company and workforce, the lecture disputes the claims that are represented in the article. His position is that a four-day work week will not be effective. According to the reading, the four-day workweek rule soars the companies' profits. The article mentions that when the workweek shortens, the employees' mistakes decrease during work, which makes their work more efficient. This specific argument is challenged by the lecturer. He claims that in the four-day workweek, the companies should spend more money to hire more workers. Additionally, he points out that in this situation, the companies need more office and computers, which reduce their profit. Secondly, The author suggests that a four-day workweek decreases the unemployment rate. In the article, it is said that when employees perform their work in 4 days, 20 percent of the tasks will remain, and the companies should recruit more people. The lecturer, however, asserts that hiring more employees is costly for companies. He goes on to say that it leads to overtime work for the current workforce, and some employees work five days a week. Finally, the author puts forth that working four days a week improves the quality of life. The author contends that the employees can spend their leisure time with their families or on their favorite activities. In contrast, the lecturer's stance is that a four-day workweek has some risks which decrease their quality of life. He notes that a reduced workweek causes job instabilities because, in this situation, the managers pay attention to their workforce, who come to work five days a week.
