New Mid Day break - an opportunity for labour class

UAE government has come out with a strict rule requiring all construction and other on-site job involving companies to allocate approximately 3 hours of rest during the time 12:00 noon to 3:00/4:00 pm. Temparature during the last few days have been going on the higher side of 50 degrees.

It is really a humanitarian move from the government for the welfare of the labourers working in this extremely hot climate. It is very refreshing to see these poor workers relaxing on the shades during noon. It has also proved as a good business opportunity for the small grocery shops nearby the huge construction areas as these workers go for snacks or cool drinks during this forced leisure time.

Looking at this scene during the last few days, I wonder why not social groups and associations or even companies utilise this leisure time to educate these poor working class about various savings methods, insurance schemes, awareness on health/welfare measures etc.

Good to see your comments and any possible implementation/assistance plans for this cause if you are in favour.
