The [ Both the ]reading and the lecture are both about[/relate to ] how many[the number of ] workdays United States employees should have. The author of the article claims that four workdays per week can benefits[ benefit] both companies and employees. The lecturer[, however, ] cast doubts[ doubt] on the claims[ claim] made in the article. His position is that four workdays will not bring advantages to both sides.

The lecturer disagrees with that argument. He claims that this[the proposed measure ] will result in the company’s necessity to hire more employees. The newly hired employees [ new recuits]will[likely ] [incur increased ]cost more medical insurance fee.

Secondly, the author asserts that fewer workdays can decrease [the ]unemployment rates [rate ].

Because the companies are not willing[ unwilling] to hire any new staff, they will only expect the [ current]employees now have to complete more work in four workdays.

Thirdly, the author suggests that four day’s work per week can[should/subjunctive voice ] bring happiness to employees, [punctuation error ]for they can spend more times [spelling error ]with famiies[spelling error ]. Besides, they will also have more spare time to do something they like. In contrast, the lecturer’s stance is that fewer workdays will not lead to a happy life. He notes that every company hopes their supervisors or managers can be five-day workers. Working four days a week may be a disadvantage for employees who seek for [preposition error ]promotion. So that [ because]fewer working day [form error ]will not[is/are unlikely ] lead to happiness in the future.
