Spain’s Prime Minister Would Cut Siestas

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has announced that he plans to cut his nation’s workday by two hours, ending the country’s tradition of midday siestas. Rajoy, leader of the center-right People’s Party, reportedly wants to get rid of the three-hour midday break, which dates back to 1942. “I will find a consensus to make sure the working day ends at 6 p.m.,” Rajoy said. Workers in Spain reportedly start around 10 a.m., stay until 2 p.m., observe a siesta, and leave for the day at 8 p.m.
