CHILE – Chile’s congress on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a bill to reduce the work week from 45 to 40 hours over five years, a decision hailed by the left-wing government as a breakthrough for workers’ rights.

The measure passed the lower house 127-14, after being unanimously approved by the senate three weeks ago. 

It was the second time Chile has reduced its work week. The first was in 2005, when it was cut from 48 to 45 hours.
