When the FIFA World Cup k!cks off, the efficiency in the German’s work place make reduce.
While most football lovers will be struggling with their sleeping-to-work ratio during those 1am k!ck offs in Brazil, German workers can have their rest.
This is simply because worker’s unions are close to pushing through an agreement with many major employers so that staff can turn up late for work, if they’ve been watching the match.
‘It would be a noble move by employers if they showed a bit of flexibility during the World Cup,’ said one union chief to Bild newspaper.
‘For Germany games after 10pm, work should start later. Employers and work councils should talk about rearranging shifts if needed so their staff can enjoy the World Cup games.’
Some organisations have already switched shifts for some staff who were due to start at 6am normally, but others are tipped to follow suit in the coming weeks.
