For each person to work the same number of days, the total number of days that are to be worked (by some two people) must be a multiple of 21. If you're talking about one day per week total, then each person would work 12 days over 42 weeks. It is possible to have each person work two days over the next 7 weeks. In the remaining three weeks, one person will not work while the others do. Good luck!
