Google CEO Larry Page has solved unemployment.

The solution: working less.

Cutting the work week from 40 hours is the way to solve "joblessness and the threat of a robot economy," according to the International Business Times.

Page dished the advice during a lengthy interview with co-founder Sergey Brin and conducted by venture capitalist Vinod Khosla, the newspaper reported.

"Most people like working," Page said. "But they'd also like to have more time with their family or to pursue their own interests."

Page, it should be noted, is running a company that's working on adding robots to a host of tasks, such as driver-less cars.
