Currently, Federal Employees can only work a part-time schedule of 32 or fewer hours. This is problematic for employees who want to work 35 hours, or 37 hours, for example, due to childcare or other life-needs. The government would save money in salary, and employees could better balance life-work. Employees are squeezed into a 40-hour work week when it is not optimal and this requires greater salary.
