Faced with the possibility that Summer Time is eliminated in Mexico, experts have stated that leaving only the winter time will have greater benefits, such as Hermes Ulises Ramírez Sánchez, research professor at the Department of Physics at CUCEI, UdeG, who believes it would be very successful.
“In our region it would be very wise to have a single schedule, if we were at a higher latitude, then the change is justified, it can be a beneficial measure in the economic aspect and secondly, in the aspect of social perception”, commented the expert.
Ramírez Sánchez considers that summer time, which has been in place for 26 years, does not really generate savings for citizens.
“In the completely scientific part, it is indifferent to have one schedule or the other because energy saving is different between one and the other (…) with the case of energy saving, I do not see many benefits, it would be very good if we returned to a single schedule and that they have the traditional one that is the winter one”, he pointed out.
Health & Wellness
In addition, in the aspect of health and well-being, the expert points out that there are even people who have gotten sick and that is an extra expense in the pocket of families.
“Secondly, there is the perception of people that the majority do not like change because they have to adapt their bodies to the new conditions, there are some that adapt easily and others it is difficult for them, in the end it is reflected in health problems very simple or even very complex pressure problems that imply an economic expense for families and social security, in other types there would be important expenses in health”, he described.
Business and borders
Ramírez Sánchez pointed out that it is important that in the border states the hours are parallel to the United States, so that businesses are not affected.
“It would have to modify its trade negotiation schedules, both the neighbors of the United States and our neighbors to the south, so that they could in certain temporalities have those equivalences in work schedules and not affect trade, which is one of the things important for which it was approved”, he said.
