Need a quick energy boost? A nap might be the answer to all your problems. It's science!
Over 1,000 garbage truck drivers in Los Angeles are $15,000 richer this week, after the City Council opted to settle a class action suit that claimed drivers were improperly prevented from napping during their half-hour lunch break. Their attorney argued that by not allowing the drivers to catch some Zzzs on the job, the city demanded they remain "on duty," even when resting. The total payout was $26 million dollars.
Admit it: your job would be greatly improved if you were allowed to spend at least a few minutes of your workday catching up on needed shuteye. And while there's plenty of evidence to suggest that taking short naps improves productivity (not to mention, job satisfaction) most bosses aren't going to go for it. So here's some more ammo for your argument.
