As Venezuela continues to suffer from blackouts, Zika virus, and a massive recession, it will also now only send workers to the office for two days a week.
Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro decided Tuesday night to shorten the work week to two days.
Public sector workers will now only report to work on Monday and Tuesday.
The move is an effort to save energy and electricity as the country’s most important source of electricity, El Guri dam, continues to suffer from record-low water levels.
In order to get the electricity crisis under control the Venezuelan government has begun to enact an increasing number of rolling blackouts that exclude Caracas, the capital, and home to the Venezuelan government.
Hospitals and some tourist destinations are being excluded from the blackouts.
If water levels in the El Guri dam do not improve the rolling blackouts could continue past the end of May.
