CARACAS -- The government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is planning to establish a 6-hour workday.


Labor Minister Roberto Hernández says he will propose a bill this year to reduce the workday, improve employee benefits and establish ''more forceful'' penalties for businesses that violate labor laws. He spoke Wednesday.

The president's allies hold a majority within the National Assembly and most bills proposed by Chávez's administration are approved.

Chávez presented the same proposal as part of a constitutional reform package that voters rejected last December.

Before the vote, some business owners warned that reducing the workday would force them to cut jobs or close down.
