STAGGERED HOURS FOR WARTIME

THE STAGGERING OF WORK HOURS IS APPLICABLE TO THREE SITUATIONS: (1) TO A SINGLE ESTABLISHMENT AS A UNIT; (2) TO TWO OR MORE ADJACENT PLANTS OR TO A GROUP OF PLANTS IN A SPECIFIC AREA; (3) TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACTIVITIES SUCH AS INDUSTRIAL PLANTS, STORES AND OFFICE BUILDINGS. ANY OR ALL OF THESE MAY BE USED IN A COMPLETE PLAN FOR A CITY. EXPERIENCE IN WASHINGTON HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT BY THIS MEANS TRAFFIC CONDITIONS CAN BE IMPROVED; PEAKS CAN BE LOWERED AND RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC BETTER DISTRIBUTED. ALSO ALLOWANCE CAN BE PROVIDED FOR FUTURE INCREASES IN EMPLOYEES. STAGGERING WORKING HOURS MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO MOVE MANY MORE PEOPLE WITHOUT INCREASE IN FACILITIES. /AUTHOR/
