Venezuela imposes two-day working week to overcome energy crisis
Venezuela’s government has imposed a two-day working week for public sector workers as a temporary measure to help it overcome a serious energy crisis.
Vice-President Aristobulo Isturiz asked that civil servants to turn up for work only on Mondays and Tuesdays until the crisis is over.
Venezuela is facing a major drought, which has dramatically reduced water levels at its main hydroelectric dam.
But the opposition has accused the government of mismanaging the crisis.
