    I've never worked on the change night. I can't believe that, but I haven't. I always wondered if you were paid for the extra hour worked?
    Yes, I always was. I can't imagine that any facility could get away with not paying an hourly employee for that extra hour, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear that some have tried. You KNOW they're not paying anyone for the hour we skip in spring!

I heard the reason it was changed in the first place was to get more people to buy more, because after dark so early in the day what else is there to do. Anyone else feel like this? They are messin' with a whole lot of ppl's chemistry doing this (Might have SAD, but that is besides the point).:angryfire I need my sunshine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The state of Indiana doesn't do the time change! They are on eastern time 1/2 the year and Central the other 1/2!
    I am glad for the change b/c that means my son isn't standing outside in the dark for his schoolbus. It is tough for the body to adjust though!

    Of course, I'm the odd duck---I wish we could stay on Daylight Saving Time all year round, like we did back during the energy crisis of the 1970s. I'm one of those people who desperately needs every bit of daylight they can get to keep seasonal-affective disorder at bay, and I HATE the early onset of darkness.

    I did enjoy that extra hour of sleep though........but why can't they do this on MONDAY morning instead of the weekend?
