What, No Today?
Yesterday/today/tomorrow* is a key step in the Pacific island of Samoa's plan to move from the eastern to the western side of the International Date Line and mesh its work week with two of its primary trading partners, New Zealand and Australia. The island's PM said:
"It hasn't been controversial. People are realising when they sleep tomorrow night, they'll wake up on Saturday."
Hotel guests won't have to pay for an extra night, but employers will be required to pay workers for Friday.
I'm sure the only people to complain will be the birthday boys and girls who were born on the 30th December...
