Believe it or not, but Wednesday (yesterday) was National Night Shift Workers Day. Working late nights can suck, but there is more to consider than the obvious problems of having a wonky schedule.
Someone dear to my heart went around the city Tuesday night to talk to people working the third shift and produced an awesome video story for ASAP, The Associated Press’ service of innovative and original multimedia stories: Night workers get their day
Ironic, I think, that this national day of commemoration could not be observed by the folks for whom it was intended. They were all sleeping.
