28. We did it for two years straight in the early 90's

They took our afternoon shift and split in half. Half of us worked 7AM to 7:30PM. The other shift worked 7PM to 7:30AM.

Then they got some kind of waiver from the state so they could break state law and make us work 7 days a week with no day off.

Used it to pay our house off. Does take a lot out of you though.

When we went back to a regular shift and workweek it felt like we were on vacation.
