Today, 3 March - the European Day for a Work Free Sunday - the European Sunday Alliance reminds everyone of the right to a work free Sunday. Our colleagues at the Austrian Sunday Alliance highlight in a statement that the work free Sunday is time not dedicated to a specific purpose, especially not an economic one.
