Venezuela extends shortened workweek decree for public sector

People walk past closed shops in a street of Caracas on March 22, 2016Venezuela’s government on Saturday extended by two weeks a decree reducing the public sector workweek to Mondays and Tuesdays in a bid to tackle the oil-rich country’s electricity crisis. President Nicolas Maduro’s administration blames the power shortage on a drought caused by the El Nino weather phenomenon, which it says has caused water used by the country’s hydroelectric plants to run low. The opposition, who hold a majority in the legislature, say the power shortage is the result of economic mismanagement and inefficient running of the energy network.
