Alex Mas researches whether American workers prefer set work schedules, and if they would take wage cuts to work from home.

Affordable child care and flexible work schedules have all been topics of debates in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. Yet, according to a new study by Princeton University and Harvard University, the average American worker is indifferent to flexible work schedules and instead prefers a set 40-hour workweek.
