• Subject: Is lack of daylight savings time really a problem?

There has been some articles on the news in Indiana that since we do not
have Daylight Savings Time then we might be missing out on some high tech
jobs.  Seems that some companies do not wish to relocate major call centers
since we do not have DST.  Frankly this makes no sense to me.  Are there no
computer users other than on the east coast?  I would think that this would
be a benefit, especially during the summer.  Besides, in this age of
enlightenment, wouldn't flex time be an better method of achieving desired
coverage?  You could cover the east coast by coming in an hour early, yet
other personnel wouldn't have to stay very late to cover the west coast.
Besides all of the call centers that I know of always have the wrong
recording during the summer 'Our hours 8 to 5 Eastern Standard Time'.  But
if you call them at 4:30 EST, which is 5:30 EDT, there is no one there.
