This is Serious Totalitarianism: Spain's Prime Minister to Outlaw Siestas
The Spanish Prime Minister has announced moves to cut the working day by two hours and bring an end to the siesta, in an attempt to bring the country into line with its European counterparts. reports The Independent.
Mariano Rajoy, the head of the centre-right coalition government, wants to scrap the universally-observed three-hour midday break.
Rajoy said: "I will find a consensus to make sure the working day ends at 6pm."
Spanish workers currently tend to start work at 10am, staying until 2pm when they have a siesta up to three hours before leaving at 8pm.
Amazing, why can't this be left up to workers and businesses? Rulers love to rule.
