Moving Time Forward To Save Energy

Venezuela is trying to come up with anything possible in order to save money in a country where the economy is in dire need of saving. Officials have decided to speed time up by about half an hour. Nicolas Maduro made the decision in the hopes that businesses would close early, workers like Norka Luque would leave their jobs early and schools would send students home early. If no one is open, then there won’t be any electricity to use, which would save on money that is spent as well as save on the electricity that is also running low. Since the time is moved forward Ms Luque said, “there will be more daylight in the evening, which will also decrease the amount of electricity that is used”. The change doesn’t take place until May 1. There is no word as to how long the change will be in effect, but there are negative responses to the decision.
