Waning hydroelectric power output leads to four-day workweek in Venezuela
from Hydro World
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has mandated a four-day workweek for all public sector employees while the South American country copes with severely reduced generation from its hydroelectric plants amidst drought. Speaking in an address on state television yesterday, Maduro said Fridays will be considered a holiday for a 60-day period in an effort to avoid energy rationing. Maduro also recently extended the government's Easter holiday to a full week in an effort to reduce power consumption.
