Espenak (2016) observes that the Daylight Savings Time idea, which may be credited to Benjamin Franklin, had the objective of maximizing on daylight hours by forward shifting of the clock by an hour in the spring and backward shifting it again during the fall.

From what I have seen in Tanglewood’s information given, using a staffing service can cost up to $70,000 to set up per store. This is $20,000 more than all the other methods combined. I feel that the cost of this one method is more likely unequal to the number of employees that it provides.
