    San Francisco recalls district attorney Chesa Boudin in blow to criminal justice reform.
    The Guardian (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 86% • 3 min read

    The race was called just over an hour after polls closed, with early returns showing the recall had received more than 60% of the vote. Critics blamed Boudin for crime, violence, homelessness, and retail thefts that escalated during the pandemic. Homicides have increased, echoing national trends, but overall violent crime decreased during the pandemic.
    Through resentencing and other reforms, Boudin has overseen a 35% reduction in the population of San Francisco residents in state prisons, a 37% decline in the adult jail population, and a 57% decline in the juvenile jail. Experts say prosecutors’ policies often have little bearing on crime rates. Boudin’s office noted that some California regions with “tough on crime” DAs were experiencing higher crime rates than San Francisco.
    San Francisco Mayor London Breed will appoint a successor, but did not immediately announce her pick. Breed has increasingly opposed Boudin’s policies and criminal justice reforms more broadly, siding with police in disputes and pushing to expand the police force and its powers.

Would countries be more or less competitive with a 32-hour work week?

Context: UK trial of a four-day work week will be the largest so far.


Less - The apparent "trend" of greater productivity with less annual working hours is false. The actual trend is location/economy vs labor productivity [...]. They don't exactly do more work but the work is more valued or more valuable. Not necessarily a good measure of productivity. [...] Those who do not have good work ethic are not likely to develop it in response to a changing work week. This is likely to result in good workers getting stressed out possibly quitting while bad workers continue to be bad workers so productivity per hour is likely to stay the same or drop.

More - It allows people the time needed to conduct their lives properly and hence reduces the distractions at work allowing their time to be more productive. [...] The extra...
