During the summer, Sony may shot down some buildings to lower energy consumption because of the recent effects from the earthquake and tsunami affecting Japan’s power grid. Because of Fukushima Daiichi and other power stations not being able to opperate at the required levels, Sony and other companies will be giving workers a two-week vacation in order to give other companies the chance to recover from the largest disaster in Japan in recorded history.
Recovery has already started, but it will take a long time to rebuild and Sony giving other companies shows why they are such a great corporation. The question that I have is where are they going to get the money for these paid-vacations? Are donations going to the relief effort going to help pay for these vacation days?
I honestly hope they aren’t receiving relief donations if they are going to be offering their employees a paid-vacation. To recover from what I have said, I do support the people of Japan and I hope for a quick recovery. Here is a little quote from Sony’s George Boyd:
We are looking to provide two weeks of holidays to workers to alleviate the electricity consumption. We are likely to bring the work hours forward to cut electricity usage on a day-to-day basis as well.
